Mahendra Singh Dhoni's family today dismissed his reported link-ups with film actresses but made it clear that they would have no problems if the charismatic Indian cricket captain, who turns 28 today, decides to tie the knot with the girl of his choice. Reacting to reports linking Dhoni to Bollywood star Deepika Padukone and south Indian actress Laxmi Rai, Dhoni's brother Narendra told PTI that those were just media speculation.
"These are all media speculation. Mahi is very close to us and he shares everything with us. If he decides to marry someone, he will tell us before anybody else," he said. Narendra said his family is not looking for girls and the cricketer was free to chose his life partner. "We are not looking for a bride for Mahi. He is free to choose his life partner. We have left this decision on him. We will welcome his choice," he said.
"We don't mind if he prefers love marriage," he added. In fact, Narendra said, there was no hurry to get Dhoni married and cricket topped his agenda at the moment.
