MS Dhoni has not recently been included in the October 2019–September 2020 BCCI deal. Although it may raise some questions about his future in the Indian Cricket Team, it didn’t greatly impact his net worth. He ranked No. 5 on the Forbes India Celebrity 100 list in 2019. It is interesting to note that, despite not playing test matches.
Mahi has an interest in several companies and ventures. He comes from a middle-class family and it seems like savings are just running in their blood as numerous investments. Even though most of last year he stayed away from cricket, he remains the brand ambassador for many brands and has a brilliant ad-film career.
Let’s look at where and how MS Dhoni makes fortune from his cricket career, besides cricketing.
Until we start the list, you should be prepared for the surprise with his investments regarding the number of sporting categories MS Dhoni is in. He is also invested in soccer, which is close to his heart, as well as hockey, which is the national sport of India. You can understand why, because he used to be a goalkeeper before shining behind the stumps.
1. Owns the Footwear side of Seven, seven brand dhoni
Seven is a renowned brand of fitness and active lifestyle that targets free-spirited youth and lives by revolutionizing the sport. Once Seven was formed in February 2016, and the company approached Dhoni to be the brand ambassador for seven, Dhoni came up with a better idea.
He accepted the offer to be the brand ambassador for the product and also owns the brand’s footwear side. Usually, this is considered a masterstroke now.
2. SportsFit by MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni is one of the most capable sportsmen in the world. Everyone in running between the wickets praises his pace. This point gives rise to his gym love affair. Ironically, Dhoni has invested also in gyms.
Under the name, SportsFit World Pvt Mahi owns 200 plus gyms across the country. Ltd. There is no point in crying over his contract loss for BCCI.
3. Chennaiyin FC
We are all aware of the passion that Mahi has for football. Okay… he wasn’t able to make a football career but is synonymous with it by owning an Indian Super League football team. You heard correctly… MS Dhoni owns a part of Chennaiyin FC.
He was often seen assisting his squad at FC Chennaiyin. The present Indian skipper Virat Kohli also has an interest in Goa FC, an Indian Super League club.
4. Mahi Racing Team India
For motorcycles, Mahi has a soft corner in his heart. And you can learn this by watching his series of crazy bikes over time. Not only this, Mahi’s fondness for motorcycles is leading him to own a Supersport World Championship racing team.
Nevertheless, he shared ownership with renowned actor Akkineni Nagarjuna but it is one of Dhoni’s great sources of income even after being weakened in the BCCI contract.
5. Hockey team
Dhoni loves sports and often has enough eagerness to promote sports at his level. He also made his investment in the Ranchi-based Hockey Club named Ranchi Rays, despite having investments in Cricket, Products, Gyms, Soccer, and the racing team.
There’s no doubt that DHoni is trying to take any chance for sport. And the sports spectrum ranges from Football to Hockey.
6. Mahi Hotel
MS Dhoni’s least successful business venture is its investments in hotels. He owns a hotel called Mahi Residency Hotel. This is a single hotel located in Jharkhand, with a branch. There are no franchises in this hotel yet. Perhaps Dhoni would crack the fortune out of this business, too, in the future.
7. Innumerable endorsements
Now, let’s think about the number of Dhoni’s brand endorsements. MS Dhoni’s net worth is only scaling by the day that passes and you can’t even figure out his immense ad-world popularity. Dhoni helped Star, GoDaddy, Snickers, Videocon, Orient Electric, NetMeds, Bose, Pepsi and the list goes on and on and on and on.
