How did MS Dhoni meet his wife?


The meeting between MS Dhoni and his future wife is nothing short of a fairytale. The duo met back in 2007 when Sakshi was interning at the Taj Bengal hotel in Kolkata. The ex-Indian captain was in the City of Joy for a match against Pakistan at the Eden Gardens.

Even though they attended the same school in Ranchi, their paths never crossed each other as she was his junior. Unlike what was depicted in the cricketer’s biopic, they were, in fact, introduced to each other by Dhoni’s manager, Yudhajit Dutta, who also happened to be a friend of Sakshi.


It was Sakshi's last day of interning at the hotel. Yudhajit called up Sakshi and asked her to come, before introducing her to Dhoni, and that’s how they first met. Dhoni later asked Yudhajit for Sakshi’s number and began texting her. Sakshi initially believed this to be a prank pulled off by her friends and ignored his texts completely. Upon realizing the texts were indeed from the boss of Indian cricket himself, she reverted and the rest is now history. In March 2008, the couple eventually stepped into a romantic relationship.

The couple was head over heels in love before tying the knot in 2010. Their affair was a well-kept secret. Dhoni waited for Sakshi to complete her studies before asking her hand in marriage. The ceremony was attended by very few people which mostly involved the couple's close family and friends. Some of the famous personalities from Bollywood, cricket, and politics like Farah Khan, John Abraham, Ashish Nehra, Harbajan Singh, Sharad Pawar, Suresh Raina, etc., were also part of the reception.


The couple is now beautiful parents to an adorable 6-year-old-daughter, Ziva Dhoni.
