Fantasy sports platform, Dream11, has rolled out two films featuring brand ambassador Mahendra Singh Dhoni. 
The films have been conceptualised by Leo Burnett Orchard and show Dhoni in a rapping avatar as he pushes forward Dream11's '#KheloDimaagSe' brand thought. 

Vikrant Mudaliar, CMO, Dream11, said, “In a cricket-dominated country like India, every cricket fan is an expert. With the new #KheloDimaagSe campaign, Dream11 provides users with a unique opportunity to use their sports knowledge, expertise and skill much like the players on the field. With fantasy gaming fast capturing the imagination of the country, Dream11 is a perfect foil for sports fans who love their game and further enhance their love through our platform.”
Amod Dani, ECD, Leo Burnett Orchard, said, “Dream11 is a game that needs a coherent understanding of cricket and its statistics. While the ‘Dimaag se Dhoni’ campaign made an immediate impact for the brand, making it one of the most sought after games in India, the core objective of ‘Khelo Dimaag Se’ is to make the platform far more social and inclusive. The motormouth, rap approach brings alive exactly what the users are thinking while Dhoni plays a central role in walking us through this musical.”
