Indian former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni turns 39 today and the entire country is wishing him the best. The inspirational icon who motivated a generation of youngsters to follow their dream, has a huge fan base across the country. Dhoni, who made his international debut in 2004 in an ODI against Bangladesh, has so far played more than 500 international matches for India becoming only the third Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid to do so.
Being the only Indian captain to win all the ICC trophies, MS Dhoni is considered as a selfless cricketer and known as a team player. One of the best examples is, Dhoni voluntarily stepped down from captaincy two years prior 2019 world cup and made Kohli to lead the team. The Jharkhand cricketer said that Kohli needs enough time to practice as captain to lead the side in the world cup tournament. However, India failed to win the cup by losing a crucial semi finals match against New zealand.
Coming from a middle class family, Dhoni achieved so many things and now became one of the richest sports personalities in the world with his sheer hard work. In IPL, MS Dhoni is captaining the Chennai team and made the team win trophies three times. On this special day, many people wishing the legend to have a healthy future.

However, a separate set of Internet users who are identifying themselves as actor Ajith fans, seemed to be upset with the Dhoni being called as “Thala” on this special day of him. Ajith Kumar is also an inspirational icon from Tamil nadu who is fondly called as “Thala” by his fans and cinema lovers. Since his 2001 blockbuster movie “Dheena”, he is being called as “Thala”.
Now, through several number of posts and comments, Ajith fans are expressing their disappointment over Dhoni being called as Thala. “There is only one Thala and that is our Ajith” is what they are claiming through their posts. They started trending a hashtag “Andrum Indrum Oreyy Thala Ajith” to prove their love towards Ajith. Check out some of their comments below :
