Dhoni ends contract with Amrapali group, no longer brand ambassador


Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has ended contract with the housing company Amrapali Group, reports news agency ANI.

This was after social media users mounted huge campaign against the cricketer for being associated with a company, which had allegedly let down thousands of its customers.

Anil Sharma, the CMD of Amrapali Group, denied Dhoni had any links with the company other than just being a brand ambassador.

He told ABP News, “We had emotional relationship and I din’t want his reputation to suffer because of the campaign against our group.”

However, new facts show that Dhoni’s wife Sakshi, is a partner in Amrapali Group’s company Amrapali Mahi Private Limited.

Sakshi, according to details, had 25 percent stakes in the company.

Sharma confirmed that while Sakshi was indeed a parner in Amrapali Mahi Private Limited, the company was never operational.

He said, “That company was created to start a charitable hospital, but it never took off. So we were planning to wind up the company.”

Last week, Dhoni was asked by a reporter to clarify on behalf of Amrapali over the company’s delay in handing over the possessions to hundreds of its customers, who had paid for flats in many of Amrapali’s flats.
