Mahendra Singh Dhoni
After the Sushant Singh-starer ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’, the love story of the former Indian skipper is not a secret for anyone. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is recognized as one of the biggest cricketing luminaries of Indian cricket. And being noticed by such a personality is nothing but a distant dream that most female fans of Indian cricket have had.
Dhoni is by nature a shy person who likes to maintain his distance from the limelight of the media. But being a national cricketer, especially being the leader of the national team with ICC trophies under his belt, it is difficult for even Dhoni to avoid the spotlight.
Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi was a big fan of the renown ‘Captain Cool’ before the two got married to each other on 4th July 2010, in Dehradun. Their daughter Zhiva Dhoni, who is the heart of all the cricket fans, was born five years later in 2015.
