Everyone present at Hotel Grand, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi recently waited patiently to meet their favourite cricketer and a legend in Indian Cricket – the coolest captain that Indian cricket team has ever had.
Yes folks I am talking about MS Dhoni himself. MS Dhoni aka Mahi was in Delhi recently to launch Active lifestyle brand SEVEN by MS Dhoni in association of the leading fashion eCommerce portal jabong.com.
It was a special treat for Fashion and sports enthusiasts as Mahi unveiled the range of freshest lifestyle apparels. SEVEN is christened after the jersey no of Mahi in the cricket arena. The brand will offer running, training and active lifestyle footwear and apparel for both men and women on Jabong from a price point starting from Rs. 500 up to Rs. 4999.
Mahi also met the 7 contest winners of the #SevenOnJabong Contest. Dhoni felicitated the seven winners of the online contest along with Mr. Arun Pandey, Chairman & MD of Rhiti Group (parent company of Seven) and Rahul Taneja, Chief Business Officer of Jabong.
Speaking at the event, M.S. Dhoni, Brand Ambassador-Seven told his fans, “Seven has been my lucky number. I was born on the seventh day of the seventh month. I became the captain of India’s ODI team in the seventh year of the twenty first century. I am happy to be sharing my lucky charm with you with my brand Seven by MS Dhoni. Fitness has always been one of my top priorities and is ingrained in the brand ethos of Seven. The SEVEN ambition is all about making fitness an intrinsic part of every city, every town, every school, every home. In my opinion, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to take your fitness seriously. All you need is the motivation to lead an Active Lifestyle.”
Rahul Taneja, Chief Business Officer, Jabong, said, “Sportswear is one of the top selling categories on Jabong for many years now and we are excited to offer Seven by MS Dhoni to our discerning shoppers. India has never had a more successful captain and Mahi’s grit and dedication is evidently the hallmark of the brand Seven, which fills in an essential value gap in the active and health-conscious lifestyle category. We are also excited about Rhiti Group’s plans to continue to launch even more innovative designs and technology-driven products in future and will keep expanding our assortment with the latest in sports fashion.”
