Mahendra-Singh-Dhoni1_1The Supreme Court has stayed a criminal proceeding against M.S. Dhoni in a Bengaluru court over his alleged portrayal as Lord Vishnu in a publication.

Dhoni had moved the Supreme Court against the Karnataka High Court order in a case filed against him for “denigrating” a Hindu god by posing as Lord Vishnu on a magazine cover page.

The High Court had last month observed: “A celebrity and a cricketer like Dhoni should know the consequences of hurting religious sentiments of people. He should have known the consequences of doing such ads.”
