Raise a Toast to M.S.Dhoni’s #No1Yaari, with McDowell’s No1 Soda


Often in life, there comes a time, when you ponder and look back at the moments most cherished. Friendship, is one such emotion, and ‘Asli Yaari’ is one that sticks through thick and thin, to emerge as #No1Yaari.

So what if one of the friends is a well-known celebrity? The bond of brotherhood is forever, and strong enough to yield the strongest of storms. One such bond is the friendship that McDowell’s No1 Soda brings to you, as we show you here the ‘Asli Yaari’ of none other than our own M.S.Dhoni!


The ace cricketer and Indian skipper comes back home to Ranchi, to be with his two real-life best friends, and they find #No1Yaari in the process.

This short film depicts a short segment of the vast life of M.S.Dhoni, as we get to see how ‘Asli Yaari’ comes in all forms, but stays in our hearts as #No1Yaari, for long. The brotherhood is strong, and M.S.Dhoni and friends bring back the same nostalgia, through this short film.

The video made by DDB Mudra, Bangalore captures them reminiscing their childhood and early years of friendship through photographs, a fun game of ‘gully cricket’ using tin cartons as the makeshift wickets and cracking jokes amongst each other while playing pranks on others. Their #NO1Yaari was not just about the good times they spent together, but also about the silly moments, jokes & laughter and harsh realities they’ve all faced together. Despite all of this, they stand here today amongst all of us depicting what #AsliYaari means to them giving all of us some serious friendship goals.


“A lot has changed over the years but one thing that has remained constant and by my side is my true friendship. Even though we are not able to meet each other very often, but whenever we do, we start from where we last left. Over the years this bond of brotherhood has only become stronger. This video by McDowell’s No1 Soda rebuilds our priceless moments and makes me cherish my yaari even more,” says MS Dhoni.


Experience the ultimate brotherhood of #No1Yaari, this time with McDowell’s No1 Soda, M.S.Dhoni, and his friends. And at the end of it, call up your friends or give them a hug, because ‘Asli Yaari’ is hard to find, and harder to sustain.


Here’s raising a toast to the spirit of friendship, to the spirit of brotherhood, McDowell’s No1 Soda way.
