Anand Mahindra, chairman of the Mahindra Group, is a staunch MS Dhoni fan. He was left in awe after the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper smashed two successive sixes during the second match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). Following his remarkable performance, the auto boss was so impressed that he called the cricketer a “superhero” and asked the franchise to add a cape to his uniform. The idea caught on, and netizens flooded the comments section with photoshopped images, showcasing the cricketer in superhero attire.
