Though official confirmation is awaited, fans are storming stadiums to see him play live. Not only this, but the admirers are also paying tribute to their ‘Thala’ in their own way, and among them a talented group of artists honoured him with a remarkable display of art.
A group of dedicated artists known as ‘Telugu Experiments Team’ created a huge thread art of Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni to honour the legendary cricketer ahead of the IPL 2023 final. They unveiled the art before the much-anticipated final summit of the season. In a video that has gone viral on social media, the awe-inspiring art was lifted using a JCB crane, leaving fans amused.
