The name of MS Dhoni is synonymous with enigma and carries an aura of mystery around him. Unlike his peers, Dhoni is known to keep his private life intact and is not a fan of using social media to disseminate information to his army of fans.


Since making his debut, until the question marks on his retirement, Dhoni’s journey has been full of enigma, which also involved his hush-hush marriage event in Dehradun.

On July 4, 2010, Dhoni chanted the sacred vows to wife Sakshi Singh Rawat in the presence of close family members and no media coverage. The wedding took place at Vishranti Resort, approximately 25 km outside Dehradun, capital of Uttarakhand.


Since then, both Dhoni and Sakshi have been spotted a number of times during games featuring India and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). In 2015, MS and Sakshi were blessed with daughter Ziva.

Their love story is well-documented in his biopic, “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story” played by the late actor, Sushant Singh Rajput. Meanwhile, Kiara Advani played the role of Sakshi.

It was reported recently that the news of SSR’s sad demise has not gone down well with Dhoni and he has locked himself up for days.


Moreover, Sakshi has kept the fans posted with recent pictures of MSD in his lavish farmhouse outside Ranchi.
