Captain cool M.S. Dhoni who is known as the most successful match finisher was once bowled out by his childhood sweetheart Sakshi Rawat. Sakshi and Mahi are childhood friends and now their relationship is an inspiration to young people.
After Mahendra and Sakshi's wedding, we have seen a new side of the devoted captain Dhoni. He is not just devoted to cricket but is also a complete family man. Today we are going to reveal the fairytale love story of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sakshi Dhoni.
Check the complete story of the couple.
Both Sakshi and Mahi knew each other since childhood and their fathers used to work in the same company. They both used to go to the same school but they didn't fall in love with each other till they grew up. Soon Sakshi's family shifted to Dehradun and they both got separated but the destiny had something else planned for them.
As is said that you never know what destiny has planned for you. Same happened with the star couple when fate got them together in the 'city of joy' Kolkata. Sakshi was working in a hotel as an intern and coincidently team India was also staying in the same hotel. Dhoni was introduced to Sakshi by the hotel manager. That was the last day of Sakshi's internship in the hotel and when she left, captain cool asked for her number from the manager and texted her.
After Sakshi received messages from Dhoni, she thought that it was some kind of a rubbish prank but soon realized that it was indeed captain of Indian cricket team texting her. Sakshi didn't go easy on Dhoni and he had to make extra efforts to make Sakshi agree for friendship. Sakshi was called as hopeless romantic by her friends especially considering the fact that she watched 'Twilight' at least 10 times. It took a lot on Dhoni's part to win Sakshi's heart and then finally they started dating in March 2008. She also attended Dhoni's birthday party that year. And after the party, Dhoni personally dropped Sakshi at her relative's house.
Dhoni and Sakshi's affair was a well-kept secret. They got married on July 4, 2010, until then nobody knew about Sakshi Rawat. Sakshi's lehenga for her wedding was a Sabyasachi's masterpiece but not even Sabya knew for whom she is preparing this lehenga. Sakshi picked the lehenga as a regular customer. All the wedding rituals were held in Dehradun and only some of the closest friends and family members made it to the wedding. These special guests were film actors, cricketers, and politicians.
Though Dhoni is completely smitten by his beautiful wife, she holds a lower position in the priority list of captain Dhoni's life. She is his third priority. Dhoni's first priority is cricket, second being his parents and finally Sakshi. As per the beliefs, Dhoni's performance after the marriage has gotten better. Also, Sakshi loves to cheer Dhoni from the stands. For now, Sakshi is Dhoni's pillar, later on, he will be her support.
After the marriage, Dhoni has captained two ICC world cups and won the most cherished one in 2011. He has been performing tremendously in IPL as well. It's been 6 years since the couple got hitched. Sakshi gave birth to their first baby Ziva in the year 2015 when the captain was away playing in Australia.
Sakshi has Dhoni's name tattooed under her right ear in Devnagri. The tattoo is Dhoni's pet name given by his fans 'Mahi'.
These 6 years were very beautiful for the couple and they both has inspired so many couples and young generation also. We will get to see the glimpses of their love story in the film 'M.S. Dhoni: The untold story'.
