Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni made the headlines on Saturday after a video of himself sporting a grey beard went viral on social media. In an Instagram post on his daughter Ziva’s official page, the 38-year-old can be seen indulging in some playful moments with Ziva while donning his new look.
