This match carries added importance as it could potentially be the last IPL match for CSK’s captain, Dhoni.
Narendra Singh Dhoni, the elder brother of Dhoni, was born on July 7, 1981, in a middle-class family in Ranchi, Jharkhand. While Dhoni commenced his international cricket career on December 23, 2004, this article will focus on shedding light on his elder brother Narendra Singh Dhoni.
Who is Narendra Singh Dhoni?
Narendra Dhoni, the older brother of MS Dhoni, is a decade his senior. Narendra Singh Dhoni, Dhoni’s elder brother, is involved in politics and has been associated with different political parties. In 2013, he joined the Samajwadi Party (SP) after previously being associated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Narendra Dhoni tied the knot on November 21, 2007, and is a proud father of a son and a daughter. Currently residing in Ranchi, MS Dhoni’s brother Narendra Singh Dhoni also spends time in his native village located in Uttarakhand. Narendra Dhoni leads a modest lifestyle akin to an ordinary individual, and there is no available information regarding his business ventures or net worth.
Interestingly, Narendra Dhoni was not portrayed in the biopic of MS Dhoni. Some reports suggest that there might be a strained relationship between MS Dhoni and his brother due to a family dispute, leading to them not being on speaking terms.
When questioned about his absence in the biopic, Narendra Singh Dhoni stated, “I may be non-existent in the movie because I don’t have significant contributions in Mahi’s life, whether it’s during his childhood, his struggles as a young man, or after he became MSD for the world. The film revolves around Mahi, not his family.”
“I am ten years older than him. By the time he started playing cricket, I had already left JVM-Shyamali and had been away from home since 1991. I was studying at Kumaon (University) in Almora, where I completed my higher education before returning to Ranchi. While I may have moral contributions in Mahi’s life, it would have been challenging to depict them in the film,” he added.
