Ranchi:

Ever heard a fan selling his shop, the lone source of his income, just to be photographed with his idol, as per the wish of his girlfriend?

That is what 23-year-old Ravindra Kumar Saini of Uttar Pradesh did.

Hailing from Saharangpur in Uttar Pradesh, Saini sold his audio/video CD shop to fund his trip to Ranchi and stay here.

He stayed here for 35 days, looking for an opportunity to shake hands with Dhoni and get photographed.

His cherished moments came yesterday at the airport when Dhoni was leaving for Mumbai. Saini sprung a surprise as security personnel stood gaping. The Indian skipper however shook hands with him and lensmen clicked, promising him to send the photograph to him.

"We know that this man was staying in Ranchi for quite some time. He approached us to meet Dhoni. He fulfilled his dream meeting Dhoni at the airport," Animesh Kumar, a friend of the Dhonis, said on Thursday.
