Sakshi Dhoni is well-known as the better half of the former Indian cricket team captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The cute petite girl from Dehradun came into the limelight only after tying the knot with the then most eligible bachelor of India. Just like her husband, Sakshi too mostly keeeps away from the paparazzi. However, she is often caught on the camera during the IPL season as she is seen supporting her husband and his team. Due to her frequent appearances at ‘Chennai Super Kings’ matches, she was dragged into the IPL match-fixing scandal, but nothing could be proved against her, and she handled the entire episode with grace. At present, Sakshi is enjoying her glorious motherhood, parenting her little munchkin, Ziva.
