8 Different Looks of MSD throughout his Career (By Rankings)
8. Long Golden Hair (2006)
After a couple of years from the start of his cricket career, Mahi became popular for his “long golden hair” than his batting capabilities. It may be because it was the very first time an Indian cricketer was seen sporting such a unique type of look.
Don’t know how true is this that MS admired John Abhrahim & therefore he copied his look. Anyways, in 2006 MS had long locks that were golden-brown in color.
At that point, the Ranchi Starwalt received a lot of appreciation for his look. You may have also seen in MSD’s Biopic that the former president of Pakistan “Pervez Musharraf” was so much in awe of his hairstyle during the Pakistan tour of 2006, that he advised him to not get a haircut.
I personally didn’t liked him in golden hairs & that’s why this hairstyle holds No.8.
Do you know? Even “Sakshi Dhoni” hated this hairstyle.
Once, Dhoni’s wife Sakshi revealed that she has never been a fan of Dhoni’s golden-streaked locks, which won the hearts of millions of fans around the country.
During a live chat with CSK presenter Rupha Ramani, Sakshi termed Dhoni’s long orange hair look a ‘disaster’. While she agreed it suited Bollywood actor John Abraham, who also sported a similar look, Sakshi insisted she liked Dhoni with his hair short. Source
