On Wednesday (October 18), as the nation celebrated Diwali, noted cricket statistician posted a picture of "Dhoni & Kohli" restaurant on his Twitter account. Soon, comments started to flow in asking about the exact location of the eating place.
While one Twitter user called it the "best partnership", there was another who asked whether the owners could be sued for using Kohli and Dhoni's names.
The restaurant is set up by Roys, according to "Zomato" website. According to a person who reviewed the food, said it was "pretty impressive".
"Its a newly opened restaurant in Thakur Village, and its pretty impressive!!," Kalyani Kulkarni wrote the website last week.
While Kohli and Dhoni have no association with this restaurant, it is likely to attract cricket fans in Mumbai.
