Indian captain MS Dhoni has revealed his love for the army. He has stated that he always wanted to be a part of the armed forces. He also said that his profile has allowed him to learn more about the military. 

He said, “From when I was a young boy, I read books on weapons and tanks and combat. Later, my profile allowed me access to the real thing so I spent time with soldiers, learning about their lives and sacrifices. I asked if it was possible to become involved myself. The result of all this is that I became an Honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment.”

Dhoni has been associated with a lot of things apart from cricket, which includes motor-racing, social work as well as endorsements. He is among the highest earning sportspersons in the world, ahead of even Ronaldo and Messi.
