Sakshi Singh Rawat is Engaged to Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Captain of Indian Cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, got engaged to his girlfriend Sakshi Singh Rawat on 3 July 2010 at a private ceremony arranged at hotel Bhagirath, located just 20km away from Dehradun. Dhoni is believed to have been dating Sakshi Singh Rawat, a 20-year-old (some say 21), for a long time.

Only the family members and close friends including cricketers Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh and Ashish Nehra were present at the ceremony. Media personnel were not allowed to attend the ceremony.

Dhoni and Sakshi met each other at a party arranged in Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu’s home on the occasion of the success of Bipasha starrer Race in 2007. The two started dating shortly thereafter. Sakshi is also reportedly a close friend of Bipasha.

Well, Dhoni and Sakshi had been long time friends from their school days in Ranchi, Jharkhand. Rumors have it that the two had been in love even before their meeting at Bipasha’s home.

Their fathers were colleagues when they were working together for MECON in Ranchi. After the retirement of Sakshi’s father, her family moved to Dehradun and settled there.

However, there is contradictory information available in the media regarding the educational background of Sakshi Singh Rawat. According to some sources, Sakshi has already completed her graduation from Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. However, some other sources say, she is a 3rd year student (some say 3rd semester) at the same institute.

In the past, Dhoni was linked with a number of actresses including Asin and Lakshmi Rai. However, it seems those rumored relationships did not affect Dhoni’s relation with Sakshi Singh Rawat. Reports available in the media also suggest that Dhoni cut his long hair short only because Sakshi does not like long hair.

Dhoni is a very popular cricketer in India. Under his captaincy, India won the ICC World Twenty20 2007.
