Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a legend that echoes with Indian cricket. Whether it’s his art of finishing a game or the impeccable leadership skills, Dhoni has come a long way from being a ticket collector for the Railways to etch his name in the history books as one of India’s most successful captains.
Such has been his prominence in the Indian cricket that almost everyone knows his story, where he comes from and what he has achieved over the years. Though his biopic ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ clearly played its part, it is actually Dhoni’s wife Sakshi who has been a source of inspiration for the Jharkhand cricketer.
But, while there is enough documentation about the struggles of our ‘Captain Cool’, little is known about his beloved wife. Since the couple’s two-year affair was a well-kept secret, details about Sakshi only emerged on the internet after the two tied the nuptial knot on 4 July, 2010.
Soon, social media was buzzing with pictures of a young Sakshi striking a pose with her friends at a party while holding a cigarette in her hand. Clearly, there is more to Sakshi than the foolish image of a party animal that has long been associated with her by the media.
However, far from her boorish media image, Sakshi is actually an independent woman, a loving wife and now a proud mother. And, her Instagram posts clearly provide a rare glimpse of who she truly is in reality.
Dhoni’s love for pets is well known in the Indian cricket circuit. Just like Virat Kohli, the former Indian captain continues to share the photographs of his pets on the social media. While Dhoni has confessed his love for the pets, his wife Sakshi, too, shares similar notions.
Her Instagram page is flooded with photos and videos of the multiple pet dogs they have, with Sakshi treating them no less than her daughter Ziva.
