Just like husband Sakshi Dhoni stays away from paparazzi. However, she usually gets caught on camera during the IPL matches, where she cheers and supports her husband and his team. Due to her presence, she once got dragged into IPL match fixing scandal. Due to lack of evidence nothing could be proved and she walked away from it with grace.
Presently Sakshi Dhoni is doing a great job raising her little munchkin, Ziva and that’s what keeps her busy.

When she moved to Dehradun she continued her education from Welham Girl’s School in Dehradun. Her later education was pursued from Ranchi at Jawahar Vidya Mandir.
She decided to opt for course in hotel management from the Institute of Hotel Management in Aurangabad. As you may have seen in the movie, she was doing her internship at Taj Bengal Kolkata, when she met her future husband Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The Love Story of Sakshi and Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Dhoni met Sakshi for the first time at Taj Bengal, Kolkata where she was on her internship for Hotel Management course in 2007.
An interesting fact is that Dhoni and Sakshi both studied at the same school in Ranchi but fate didn’t plan for them to meet at that time. However, Sakshi was a junior. So they never got a chance to meet each other.
The coincidences prove that they were meant for each other. Both of their fathers happened to be colleagues at Mecon Limited.
The actual story of these two falling in love is a bit different from what was shown in the biopic of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. It is right that they met at the hotel but not the way it was shown in the movie. They were introduced to each other by the hotel’s manager and their common friend, Yudhajit Dutta.
Dutta had planned a farewell party for Sakshi, where he also invited Dhoni. That’s where Dhoni and Sakshi were introduced for the first time.
Dhoni liked her and asked for her number from Dutta. Later he started texting her. At first Sakshi Dhoni thought it was her friend trying to play a prank on her so she ignored the texts. When she came to know the truth, she was completely surprised. They got into a relationship in March 2008.
After the tragic end of Dhoni’s previous love affair with Ranchi girl, Priyanka Jha during his early days as a part of Indian Cricket Team, Sakshi came into Dhoni’s life as a new ray of hope. Everything changed in his life from then on.
He invited Sakshi at his birthday party in the same year. But as they had to keep it a secret and Dhoni’s preoccupation with his teammates and friends, he couldn’t spend much time with her. Sakshi got really upset with behaviour. So, to make it up to her he drove her back home.
Their courtship and such sweet, little fights went on for sometime until they decided to get married. They managed to keep their relationship secret until the big announcement. They got married with the permissions and blessings from their respective families.

Nature of Sakshi Dhoni
We have to admit Dhoni’s wife Sakshi is a perfect example of great wife and a greater mother. The way she is raising little Ziva mostly herself, as Dhoni remains busy with his work and tournaments, is commendable.
The vast age difference between Sakshi and Dhoni has never come in their way of perfect marriage. She knows how to manage things properly.
When Sakshi was 9 months pregnant, Dhoni was busy in the 2015 World Cup Tournament. She wanted her husband to be with her at that time but she knew from the very beginning what she was marrying into. She knew that for a National Cricket Team captain, his work and responsibilities will always come first.
After Ziva was born, Dhoni was the first person she wanted to contact, but he was not carrying a cell phone at that time. He stated later, “I am on National Duty, everything else can wait.” He knew pretty well Sakshi would understand.
During the last IPL season, Rising Pune Supergiant’s owner’s brother insulted Dhoni, she posted to bash him.
Sakshi is a bold and witty woman. She knows how to reply back subtly but effectively to whoever tries to hurt her loved once. Dhoni’s fan appreciated her greatly for this action.
