New Delhi: Joy knew no bound when Akshay Kumar got a rare gift from Mahendra Singh Dhoni recently after India won a thrilling match against Pakistan at Mirpur, Bangladesh.
Being a huge fan of cricket and MSD, Bollywood khiladi Akki took time off to watch the India-Pakistan match and was simply elated on Team India’s epic win, but the actor was especially gratified when he became a proud recipient of a ‘win souvenir’ in the form of Dhoni’s gloves which the Captain ‘cool’ had used in the match just won!
Akki has never met Dhoni before, so when he had the chance to meet the Team India captain in Bangladesh while promoting his next release, Akshay jumped at the opportunity.
Akshay feels MSD is the best thing to have happened to Indian cricket in a long time.
Little did he know that Dhoni would be gifting him his gloves later that night.
Dhoni sent his victory gloves to Akshay`s hotel along with a `Thank You` note. “When India was facing a crisis during the Australian series, Akshay was one of the few stars who actively came out in support of Dhoni on his social networking page”, said a source.
Now, Akshay plans to gift the gloves to his son Aarav after he returns from Bangladesh. Apparently, Aarav loves cricket as much as his father.
