Today, we will be sharing the complete details of the love story of team India’s most successful captain, MS Dhoni, who got bowled over by gorgeous Sakshi Rawat.

Love story of MS Dhoni and Sakshi:

When Sakshi Singh Rawat, an intern at Taj Bengal, was introduced to Mahendra Singh Dhoni in 2008 by Yudhajit Dutta (the latter’s manager and confidante), it was a sort of reunion for both of them.

Dhoni’s young neighbour in Ranchi -seven years his junior — had grown up to be a bright and beautiful hotel management graduate.

Mahi and Sakshi’s fathers used to work for MECON, a public sector company in Ranchi and their families would meet often. The two studied in DAV Jawahar Vidya Mandir, Shyamali, and were friends.


Mahi then passed out of school and pursued a career in cricket, playing first for Coal India Limited and then moving on to Kharagpur to represent South Eastern Railway.

The Rawat family, in between, moved to their native Dehradun after the retirement of Sakshi’s father. The two childhood friends therefore drifted apart.

Sakshi completed her graduation from the Institute of Hotel Management, Aurangabad, in 2008 and was posted at Taj Bengal as an intern, where she met her childhood friend after almost 10 years. By then Mahi had become a reputed player of Indian Cricket Team.


Mahi is said to have texted messages to Sakshi. Meanwhile, she was under the belief that one of her friends was playing a prank on her and therefore she didn’t respond to those messages.

When Yudhajit Dutta confirmed that the messages were indeed from Mahi, it was then she responded to them. And so they became friends again and dated each other for few years before getting married in July 2010.
