Sakshi was born on 19 November 1988 in Guwahati city of Assam, India. Surprisingly Anushka Sharma (a Bollywood actress) and Sakshi were the classmates in elementary school. After finishing her graduation in hotel management, Sakshi joined Taj Bengal, Kolkata as an intern and coincidently met M. S. Dhoni (Mahindra) on the last day of her Internship in there. Because of that meeting, they both liked each other and became friends.
Sakshi later shifted to Dehradun along with her family and the two lost touch after that. But fate had other plans and Sakshi and Dhoni were re-introduced to each other by Yudhajit Dutta in 2007. India was playing against Pakistan at Eden gardens at that time. The romance eventually blossomed and they dated for 3 years before marrying each other in a low profile ceremony in 2010. Sakshi wore a red and green Sabyasachi lehenga for her wedding day. Their marriage has been rock solid since then and they were blessed with a baby girl in 2015. Sakshi and Mahi are indeed a power couple and provide major couple goals.
Sakshi is fond of cooking and is always seen carrying an electric cooker whenever she accompanies MS Dhoni on his cricket tours. Sakshi is also active over social media handles like Instagram with a fan base of over 43.2K followers and regularly posts for her fans on the IG platform.
Sakshi did her primary schooling from Welham Girls’ School in Uttarakhand. Interestingly Anushka Sharma and Sakshi were classmates in an elementary school. But little did they know that both these girls would end up marrying two of India’s greatest cricket Legends.
Sakshi completed her higher schooling from Jawahar Vidya Mandir and fatefully M.S. Dhoni has also studied in the same school but was her senior. She later did her graduation in Hotel Management from The Institute of Hotel Management, Aurangabad and after that She did her internship at Taj Bengal, Kolkata.
- Controversies – Sakshi has been part of quite a few controversies till now, have a look at few of them:
- In 2013, one of her photos with Vindu Dara Singh created speculations of her being his associate in the spot-fixing scandal.
- Later in 2016, a man named Dennis Arora registered a case against her and 3 more people named- Arun Pandey, Pratima Pandey, and Shubhawati Pandey. He accused them of being involved in a multi-crore fraud. Sakshi previously was the director of Rhiti MSD Alamode Pvt. Ltd. It had stocks in the gym. According to Dennis, his father had a 39 percent stake at the gym which was sold to thee RHITI MSD Alamode Pvt Ltd. It was worth 11 crores. But Dennis claimed that his father was paid only Rs. 2.5 Crores. On the other hand, Arun Pandey concurred that Sakshi departed the company a year ago. This led to the rise of a lot of rumors about Sakshi and she was pulled in to this controversy.
- Poorna Patel, Daughter of businessman and politician Praful Patel is Sakshi’s best friend. In 2018 at Poorna’s wedding, Sakshi was wearing a silver and pink Manish Malhotra lehenga. While her fans loved her in this look, some people lashed her for the blouse she was wearing because of its deep neckline calling her dressing style inappropriate. Even though she was trolled heavily, some people came in her support and made the trollers question their thinking.
- Later in the same year, a photo of Mahi and Sakshi where Mahi was seen tying her shoeless went viral. It became a subject for her getting trolled. She put the photo along with the caption ‘You Paid for the shoe, you tie them too’. Several people criticized her for this photo stating that what all she was then was due to Mahi and her celebrity status was due to him. But Sakshi using her amazing sense of humor posted another photo where Mahi was seen to be screwing her bracelet along with the caption ‘you paid for the band, so you screw it too’ this photo made her haters and trollers stop. Kudos to that!
