An advertisement that depicts MS Dhoni as Lord Vishnu has landed the Indian skipper in legal trouble.

An activist has filed a case against him in a Bengaluru court, alleging Dhoni had ‘denigrated’ the Hindu god in the advertisement in a business magazine.

The case was registered under section 295 of the IPC — injuring or defiling a place of worship with intent to insult the religion — on a complaint that said that by posing as Lord Vishnu, holding several things including a shoe in his hands, Dhoni had hurt “religious sentiments”.

The court will take up the case on May 12, when the complainant’s statement will be recorded.
