So, what will be the new task for the cricketing legend? As the brand ambassador of SBI, Dhoni will have an important part to play in different marketing and promotional campaigns, the bank said in a statement.
Why Dhoni? Well, Dhoni’s immense patience and tolerance levels in stressful situations have clearly made him a leader who knows how to think clearly and make quick but wise decisions. The philosophy is in sync with the bank’s connection with its customers and stakeholders all over the country.
The bank added that the collaboration is a symbol that the bank is dedicated to creating meaningful and deeper connections with its customers, thus showing its values of trust and leadership.
SBI Chairman Dinesh Khara said, “Dhoni’s association with SBI as a satisfied customer makes him a perfect embodiment of our brand’s ethos. With this partnership, we aim to reinforce our commitment to serving the nation and our customers with trust, integrity, and unwavering dedication”.
Meanwhile, Dhoni was seen in a panel discussion with comedian Tanmay Bhat and influencer Sharan Hegde wherein he shared a viral relationship tip for bachelors. He also spoke about how he deals with his fame and yet stays humble. During a segment of this panel discussion at Prabhav 2023, an event arranged by Rigi, Dhoni shared his wisdom on relationships that gave important insights for bachelors.

The video starts with Tanmay Bhat seeking personal advice from Dhoni. He says, “I am single and I feel like… you know when the rest of your life is so chaotic, having a partner who brings some sort of stability that is very appealing to me now… At least home life is sorted. Do you remember how your life changed when you found some stability in a relationship, in your personal life. Does it help?”
Dhoni’s response to this question has gone viral online. He quipped, “Bachelors, jinki girlfriend hai unka ek misconception hota hai jo ki main clear karna chahunga by ending this answer, ye mat sochna ki meri wali alag hai [Bachelors, those who have girlfriends, often have a misconception, which I would like to clear by ending this answer – don’t think that your partner is different].”
