Kolkata: India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will soon have his long locks back.
Dhoni, who was in Kolkata for a promotional event, chose not to speak about cricket and mostly talked about his passion for bikes and his hair.
Sporting a white shirt, Dhoni told the gathering that his bald look, immediately after winning the World Cup last year, was in no way related to some offering to God.
"I'm growing my hair again. People said that I shaved my hair because of some 'mannat'. But actually I wanted a lean look with the summer approaching so I decided to go bald," Dhoni said.
Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf had become a Dhoni admirer during India's tour of 2006 and had suggested that he should not get a haircut since he looked good in long hair.
At the event, Dhoni also revealed how his fascination for bikes started.
"There used to be the old Rajdoot motorcyles in 'Hero'... I really liked the model. I still have about eight of them," he said.
Known for his cool demeanour, Dhoni further said that the team discusses petty things even during matches.
"People often ask what we discuss in the middle of a high-voltage match. But we generally talk about what's there for food at hotel...," he smiled.
Dhoni also stumped the gathering with his rendition of 'Main pal do pal ka shayar hoon' from the movie 'Kabhie Kabhie'.
