Indian skipper MS Dhoni was the most eligible bachelor in the last decade. His flamboyance, charisma, style on and off the field made him one of the most desirable men in the country. And when he was at the peak of his career during 2007 he revealed his crush for Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone who was a newcomer in the film industry back then. As expected the actress was flattered by the news and rumours of her being in a relationship with Dhoni were doing the rounds all over.

The rumours became strong when Dhoni  invited Deepika for a T20 match in 2007 and sure enough, she accepted and was seen cheering the team from the stands. All eyes were on Deepika during the match in spite of the presence of big names like Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar and actor Shahrukh Khan. She watched Dhoni hit the winning six. She was there on the stands, cheering till the end and gave standing ovation to the winning team. It was also said that Dhoni chopped off his trademark long hair on the actress’ insistence.

They were also spotted during together doing a ramp walk during a fashion show. In another incident Yuvraj Singh, who too was linked with the actress for a short period of time, was seen teasing Dhoni when both were attending a show in which Deepika was performing.
