There is a reason why Mahendra Singh Dhoni is worshipped by cricket fans across India and abroad. Famous for his calm captaincy and the ability to handle tight situations with ease, it was under his rule that team India won several important championships. Even the most famous celebrities in India are his ardent fans. And one of them seems to be singer Arijit Singh.
In the recently held IPL 2023 opening ceremony held in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi stadium, Arijit Singh took over the stage to perform for the jam-packed stadium. When MS Dhoni went up on the stage, Arijit humbly bent down to touch his feet in a gesture of great respect.

Arijit Singh’s humble nature is not unknown to his fans. In the past, there have been reports of him living a very un-celebrity-like life – wearing simple clothes, visiting his son’s school to pick him up, and going to neighbourhood markets to pick up groceries.
However, this gesture by Arijit Singh managed to win the hearts of several people online. It is not a matter of debate that MS Dhoni is deserving of such gestures but for a world-famous artist like Singh, it is indeed surprising. This is how some of them reacted:
Arijit singh is one of the most down to earth celebrities in india

Arijit Singh is a legend himself but he is so simple, sober and down to earth. I haven’t seen simplicity like him in bollywood.
Legend respecting legend.

Not the stardom, but it is such simplicity that makes the singer a legend! 🙂
