Love Story of Sakshi & MS Dhoni
Sakshi met Dhoni at ‘Taj Bengal’ where she was pursuing her hotel management internship, in 2007. Interestingly, both Dhoni and Sakshi studied at the same school in Ranchi. However, Sakshi was his junior and hence they had never met during their school time. Another interesting but not a well-known fact is that their respective fathers were colleagues at Mecon Limited.
Their actual love story is a little bit different than in the biopic of MSD shown. They did meet at the Taj Bengal, as shown in the film, but they were introduced to each other by the manager and their common friend, Yudhajit Dutta. Dutta had organized a farewell party for Sakshi as it was her last day of internship. Before throwing the party, Dutta had invited Dhoni too, and that’s how they first met.
Dhoni took her number from Dutta and started texting her. Sakshi ignored the messages initially, thinking that it was a prank played by one of her friends, but was completely awestruck when she came to know the truth. They eventually fall into a romantic relationship.
Sakshi attended his birthday party the same year. Since Dhoni could not spend much time with her due to his preoccupation with friends, he drove her back to her place to make up for it. They thoroughly enjoyed their courtship and also somehow managed to keep it a secret. Sakshi and Dhoni then decided to get married after the family has agreed.
