As the most awaited film of the year, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story hit theatres last Friday, the movie has already broken numerous box office records. As fans, we got to a sneak peek into the life and struggles of India’s most successful captain.
As the title suggests, we were informed about a lot of the "untold” aspects of Dhoni’s life. Right from his first love interest, Priyanka Jha to the fact that Dhoni was not the one who created the helicopter shot, there were a few facts which stumped the audience.
Just like any other person, Dhoni too had gone through a fair share of struggles in his life. There were a few moments which were truly heartbreaking and as fans, we were able to empathise with his struggles.
Here are 5 moments from the movie which made us reach for a tissue.
#5 When Priyanka Jha died
The death of a loved one is one of the worst feelings anyone could possible experience. MS Dhoni was involved in a romantic relationship with Priyanka Jha who was a working professional. They met on the flight from Kochi to Vizag during Pakistan’s tour of India in 2005.
After a year of being involved with Priyanka, tragedy struck. M.S Dhoni was returning from the Pakistan tour of 2006 when he learnt about Priyanka’s death. Priyanka had met with a fatal accident while driving her car. Dhoni was on his way back from the airport with his friends when one of them told him about her demise. The scene where we see Dhoni sitting down on the road and crying brought about a lump in our throat as his pain could be felt by all of us.
The fact which made it even worse was that Dhoni wanted to express to Priyanka that he loved her but did not do it because he thought he had a lot of time with her, which he kept pointing out to her when she inquired about her relationship with him
