Dhoni had filed a case against two of his former business partners Mihir Diwakar and Soumya Vishwash who owned a sports management firm called Aarka Sports and signed an agreement to build a Global Cricket academy. However, they failed to fulfil the agreement and were forced to pay a franchise fee and some of their profits and shares. Despite this, the conditions were still ignored and the former India skipper decided to issue some legal notices against them.
