“Yeah yeah (got a great response), from him (Dhoni) and from his wife (Sakshi). His wife was instrumental in some of the things put into the song. For example, naming the song helicopter was her idea. I wanted to call the song No. 7. I asked some of his fans too about the things they want and the thing that stood out was the helicopter. I’m just happy I was able to put together a project like this. The song reached a million views within an hour,” Bravo told ABP News.
