Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hrithik Roshan finally met and bonded big time


Hrithik Roshan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni recently met in Kolkata during the IPL match of Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings and bonded like old friends.


Says a source close to Hrithik,“ Though he’s not a big cricket fan Hrithik was excited to meet Dhoni — especially after the world cup. He was meeting Dhoni for the first time. When it started raining and play was stopped for a while, Shah Rukh introduced Hrithik to Dhoni. Both chatted for a few minutes. Dhoni is said to have mentioned that he loved Hrithik’s dancing and acting while Hrithik complimented him on being a great captain. After KKR’s win Hrithik, Shah Rukh and Arjun Rampal along with Maheep Kapoor, Neelam, Bhavna Pandey, Kajal Anand and Gauri Khan walked around the stadium.”

The source adds, “ The Kolkata match was Hrithik’s first ever cricket match that he watched in a stadium and he loved it. Shah Rukh has a party after every match of his irrespective of whether KKR wins or loses. He invites the losing party, too. Though Dhoni didn’t attend the post- match party Hrithik had a blast at the party and at the match. He also met other KKR team members including Gautam Gambhir, Yusuf Pathan and Brett Lee.”
