Ranveer Singh is currently gearing for his upcoming film '83' which is based on India’s historic world cup win in 1983 and the cricket team's victory over West Indies to bring home India's first cup. Ranveer will reportedly play the character of Kapil Dev and the veteran cricketer has agreed to coach the 'Padmaavat' actor. In fact, lately, the actor has been spotted spending time with quite a few cricketers. Earlier Ranveer's picture with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar went viral and now the 'Bajirao Mastani' actor has posted a selfie with former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Ranveer never shies away from admitting his fondness for other celebrities and this time around, the 'Dil Dhadakne Do' actor took to Instagram and shared a selfie with MS Dhoni. Ranveer captioned the picture as, "Good Times with Mahi Bhai @mahi7781 ? #Lionheart #MSD#TheGreatest".
Take a look at his post here:
In the picture, both Dhoni and Ranveer can be seen smiling ear to ear and Ranveer has his hand around Dhoni’s shoulder as the duo strike a pose for the selfie. Ranveer can be seen sporting a moustache and large gold-rimmed glasses. The duo seemed to have enjoyed each other's company.
