How did MS Dhoni meet Sakshi?

The story of how the former Indian captain and his then-would-be wife meet is one of a kind and nothing short of a fairy tale. After completing her studies at the Institute of Hotel Management, Aurangabad, she got herself an internship at the Taj Bengal, Kolkata where the duo eventually met, back in 2007. Who knew, destiny had some plans for these two charming people.

The ex-Indian captain was in the City of a Joy where he was about to lock horns against the Pakistan side at Eden Gardens. The sad part about their story is the two of them studied in the same school back in Ranchi but never crossed paths as she was his junior there. However, the duo ended up coming face to face and it didn’t happen as it has been depicted in the Bollywood version of MS Dhoni’s biopic.

The duo was introduced to each other by Dhoni’s manager, Yudhajit Dutta, who also happened to be a friend of Sakshi.  It was the last day of Sakshi’s interning at the hotel when Yudhajit called her and asked her to come, before introducing her to MS Dhoni and that’s how the two met.

Later, the boss of Indian cricket approached his manager for Sakshi’s number to reach out to her. She initially believed it was a silly prank pulled off by her friends only to later realize she had been receiving texts from the former Indian captain himself. Upon realizing the same, she reverted to his texts and the rest as we all now know is history. Later, in march 2008, after a string of constant conversations and dates, the duo dipped their toes into a romantic relationship.

Their affair was a well-kept secret and after they thoroughly enjoyed their courtship, they decided to get married after seeking the blessing of their parents.

Dhoni waited for Sakshi to get done with her studies before he could ask her hand for marriage. Their engagement took place at ‘Hotel Competent’ in Dehradun, a place MS Dhoni’s wife adores and the wedding took place at ‘Vishranti Resort’ in Dehradun. The duo finally tied the knot on July 4, 2010. At that time, Dhoni was 28 years old, turning 29.

The ceremony was attended by very few people which mostly involved the couple's close family and friends. Some famous personalities including the likes of Farah Khan, John Abraham, Ashish Nehra, Harbhajan Singh, Sharad Pawar, Suresh Raina, etc., were also part of the reception. As for the bride’s appearance, Sakshi was wearing a beautiful red and green lehenga, designed by the ace bridal designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

The duo welcomed Ziva Dhoni, the youngest member of their family. As of July 2022, the little girl is 7 years old and the happy family lives together in Ranchi.
