Indian cricketer MS Dhoni was on Sunday hugged and kissed publicly by a frenzied female fan in the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on the last day of the five-days conditioning camp ahead of the Bangladesh tour.

With the Shilpa Shetty-Richard Gere kissing controversy still afresh, it was time for some more grit to the kissing mill as the stylish cricketer was grabbed and kissed by a young woman after she broke the security cordon and took all by surprise with her action.

Haseena Nasreeb Shiuli of Berhampore in Murshidabad along with her friend Sweety had been almost camping in Eden Gardens since May 2 to cheer the Indian players.

Shiuli, a die-hard Dhoni fan and a first year student of Berhampore College, hugged and kissed Dhoni as he came down from the team bus to oblige for an autograph. The team was leaving by the bus after the morning practice session.

She had been cheering for Dhoni with a poster emblazoned "I love you" for the past few days.

The girl broke into tears and went hysteric screaming "Dhoni", "Dhoni" as she was whisked away by the security men.

"I had come to see only Dhoni from Berhampore (about 250 km from Kolkata)," she said breaking down in tears.

"It is the most memorable day of my life. Dhoni advised me to go away because of the cops and said he is there for me," Shiuli said as she kept waving at the team bus.

Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty had recently angered Hindu radicals when Hollywood star Richard Gere kissed her publicly at a function on AIDS awareness on April 15 in Delhi.
