    Default Dhoni, Bhajji skip Padma Shri for ad-shoots




    Dhoni, Bhajji skip Padma Shri for ad-shoots

    Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who were to be awarded the Padma Shri award this year, could not attend the award-giving ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Tuesday. Both the players were busy with endorsements and ad-shoots and that is the reason which kept the two ace cricketers away from the Presidential honour.

    Bhajji denies skipping Padma awards for ad shoot
    When contacted, Harbhajan Singh brushed the issue aside, saying that he had family commitments to take care of.

    "There were a few family commitments, some serious things... That is why I could not go. We had a long tour of New Zealand and got just a few days with our families. People who are criticising me should understand that family issues cannot be ignored," he said.

    Dhoni, meanwhile, flew to South Africa on Tuesday itself and was unavailable for any comment.

    Its a real shame that a national honour should be held so lightly by those upon whom it is bestowed! surely, this behaviour reflects on the national character. I personally am ashamed to hear this piece of news!!
