MS Dhoni’s daughter Ziva Singh Dhoni is only two years old, but her young age has not stopped her from becoming a social media sensation in recent times.

Ziva was recently in the limelight for offering her father a bottle of water at the end of the Celebrity Clasico football game between Virat Kohli’s All Heart FC side and Abhishek Bachchan’s All Stars FC.

In the video, Ziva is singing a Malyali song from the 1992 Malyalam film ‘Adwaytham’, which was taught to her by her nanny Sheila, who herself is from Kerala.
