MS Dhoni’s sand sculpture unveiled, to honour his contribution to cricket
Chennai, 10 May 2019: Boost, one of GSK’s leading brands in the Health Food Drinks
category, honoured its brand ambassador MS Dhoni by creating a massive & unique sand
sculpture. This was a tribute to Dhoni’s contribution to cricket and his long-standing
relationship with the brand. The sand sculpture was designed and inaugurated by renowned
sand artist Manas Sahoo at Elliot’s beach, Chennai.
MS Dhoni, who is also known as ‘Thala’, has always encouraged young players to play a
bigger game, be it with his leadership style or his inspiring attitude on the cricket ground. The
sand sculpture is a befitting tribute to such an inspiring sportsperson. Crowds gathered
around the venue in big numbers to join Boost in this tribute to their hero.
As part of the activation, kids also got an opportunity to try their hand at MS Dhoni’s
signature helicopter shot while playing cricket in the specially setup practice nets at the
venue. Dhoni has upheld the legacy of inspiring young sports enthusiasts and this activation
is a perfect example of bringing alive Boost’s promise of inspiring and winning big.
Commenting on the event, Vikram Bahl, Area Marketing Lead, Nutrition & Digestive
Health, GSKCH Indian subcontinent, said,” Boost has always been synonymous with
stamina, energy and winning spirit. With this tribute, we wanted to celebrate and honour MS
Dhoni’s winning spirit and the energy that he brings to the game. We are proud that a
champion like him is part of our Boost fraternity who perfectly embodies our brand’s persona
and is an inspiration to millions.”
