Ranchi:Everybody seems to think that MS Dhoni has parted with his tresses because of a certain damsel named Deepika Padukone.
There's more being said about his haircut than his square cut, these days.
And MS Dhoni, who usually says 'not too much off the top please', has given his fans something new to look forward to, or rather, look at, by going for something drastically different - a crew cut.
A host of Dhoni lookalikes had come to welcome their son. But they didn't know that their hero had gone for a crew cut on Tuesday.
"It's called the 'Pointed Cut'. I think it looks good on him. He used to look good with long hair as well, but this is also nice," said Tarkeshwar, Dhoni's barber.
John Abraham, who goes to the same hairstylist, found that out over dinner.
Looks as though he liked the cut, but wonder how Dhoni's most powerful admirer would react considering his advice two years ago.
"A lot of people say you should cut your hair, but I don't think so," said Pervez Musharraf, President, Pakistan.
Dhoni is fast catching up with the likes of David Beckham and Kevin Pietersen, when it comes to the hype around his hairstyle.
