Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of the Indian cricket team, is celebrating his 42nd birthday on 7th July. While Dhoni is very successful in his professional life, he is also very happy in his personal life.

Dhoni was born in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand, but his family is from Almora district of Uttarakhand. Dhoni’s father Paan Singh used to work in Macon, Ranchi and due to this he settled here. While Sakshi Singh Rawat was a resident of Kolkata.
Sakshi’s father and Dhoni’s father worked in Macon and were friends. So Dhoni and Sakshi also knew each other since childhood. They used to study together in Ranchi school as well. However later Sakshi Singh’s family settled in Dehradun.
Sakshi shifted to Dehradun with her family. About 10 years later, in the year 2007, Dhoni and Sakshi met once again in Kolkata.
Actually, during this time Team India was staying at the Taj Bengal Hotel in Kolkata and the interesting thing is that Sakshi was doing her internship from here. Sakshi’s manager Yudhjit Dutta had arranged a meeting with Dhoni.
During this meeting, Dhoni took Sakshi’s phone number. After this he also sent a message to Sakshi. But then the series of meetings between the two increased and then after two years, Dhoni expressed his love in front of Sakshi.
Dhoni and Sakshi were married on 4 July 2010. The couple was blessed with a lovely baby girl Ziva on 6 February 2015. Currently, Dhoni and Sakshi are enjoying a happy life with their daughter.
