Mumbai: Former Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is very often known for his gestures, both off the field and on the field.
Right from being heard on stump mic during matches to entertaining daughter Ziva while taking a break from cricket, the wicket-keeper batsman has always been a popular figure among Indians.
‘Thala’ Dhoni was it again. In a throwback video posted by hairdresser Sapna Bhavnani on Instagram, Dhoni was seen dancing to John Abraham's ‘Jhak Maar Ke’, a Bollywood song from the movie Desi Boyz.
. A long time ago at a shoot we found ourselves in @thejohnabraham ‘s van so @sakshisingh_r and I directed @mahi7781 to make a video for him. And he did! And how! I am blessed to have spent so many precious moments with this man since he was a boy and feel sometimes it’s my responsibility to let ya’ll glimpse into our simple mad world. Enjoy and laugh all day!

While Dhoni is seen showcasing his dance moves, his wife Sakshi can be seen bursting into laughter.
This is not the first time Dhoni is trying out his dance moves. Earlier this year, before the Indian Premier League, Dhoni among a few other Rising Pune Supergiant teammates were seen dancing for a promotional video.
Dhoni has always been an integral part of Virat Kohli-led Team India and also helped the Men in Blue seal the ODI and T20I series against New Zealand, both of which finished at 2-1.
The 36-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman will now take a break from cricket, as Virat Kohli and co prepare for a three-match Test series against Sri Lanka at home, with the first Test beginning on November 16 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
The veteran will be back in action for India when they play a limited-overs series against the Islanders, starting on December 10.
Dhoni had announced his retirement from Test cricket in 2014, to prolong his limited-overs career. Earlier this year, he had also stepped down as captain of the Indian side for ODIs and T20Is, passing the responsibility to Virat Kohli, who became the skipper of the team for all three formats.
