Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is nowadays promoting the English Premier League through TV commercials, could be soon seen cheering for his own team in upcoming Indian Premier League-style football league. Bollywood hunk John Abraham is reportedly set to partner Dhoni in this joint venture.
John is not the first Bollywood celebrity to show keen interest in the multi-million dollar football league. Recently, Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan also threw his weight behind the soccer tournament, saying he wishes to buy another Kolkata-based team.
According to sources, Dhoni and John, both crazy about bikes and football, may come together to buy a football franchise in the league, which is proposed by IMG-Reliance, the marketing and commercial partners of the All India Football Federation.
