In the movie, Disha played the role of Dhoni’s first girlfriend Priyanka Jha. Sushant and her introduction took place when the former was in the aeroplane during the home series against Pakistan. The duo had a friendly chat after which Disha said that Sushant would be having a great game next time.
In the very next ODI in Vizag, the Jharkhand-born Dhoni announced himself to the world and scored a sparkling century. Sushant and Disha’s relationship kept flourishing, but fate had some other plans for them. When Dhoni was away for the tour of Pakistan, Disha met with a car accident.
Her car was run over by a massive vehicle. On returning, Sushant’s friends were reluctant to give him the news. But when he got to know about the development, he got down from the car, sat on the road and cried. However, he shed the disappointment and moved ahead in his life.
