Fans through MS Dhoni‘s biopic will get to know many untold truths of the Indian World Cup Champion. One such truth is, who was the first love of MS Dhoni ?
Times of India quoted a source close to the production saying, “MS Dhoni was in love with a girl named Priyanka Jha in his early 20s. Dhoni was looking to make it to the Indian squad at that time and he also wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.”
MSD made an impact on selectors during a tri-nation series for India A in Kenya and Zimbabwe in 2003-04, scoring 362 runs in six innings at an average of 72.40. In few days, he was a part of the Indian team where he started performing well under the lights of Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly.
However, the girl whom Dhoni loved so badly was killed in an accident and he was completely devastated when he returned home to know the ‘secret’ and was in even mourning for almost a year.
Later on, he tied the knot with Sakshi Singh Rawat on 4th July 2010 in Dehradun. Sakshi, played by Kiara Advani has a role too in Dhoni’s biopic ‘MS Dhoni : The Untold Story’ that unveils on September 30 with Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead.
Neeraj Pandey, the director of the movie had taken Dhoni’s consent to include this tragic secret track in the film as this girl’s entry and exit marked a turning point in his life. After some deliberation, he finally agreed that this important chapter in his life needed to be told to the world. The world has to know who was his first love.
