MS Dhoni biopic reveals the cricketer's first love story; it's tragic

The upcoming biopic ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’ is inarguably one of the most anticipated movies of the year. The movie is said to be about the journey of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of most successful cricket captains.

The movie will also reveal many untold events from Dhoni’s life that his fans are not aware of. This includes a tragic love story that nearly made the cricketer quit his game.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, before getting married to Sakshi Rawat, Mahi was passionately in love with a girl named Priyanka Jha. He met her when he was still in his early twenties and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.

While Dhoni was climbing the cricketing ladder scoring runs for the country and catching the eye of his seniors, tragedy struck and he lost Priyanka in an accident. When he learnt about her death he was shattered and was in mourning for a year. People close to him thought that he might fall apart.

But with the spirit of a true sportsman, he overcame his grief slowly and went on to become one of the biggest name in Indian cricket. He never looked back, but never forgot his first love even after he found love in Sakshi whom he married in July 2010. The couple is blessed with a baby girl born last year.

Director Neeraj Pandey had taken the cricketer’s permission to include this aspect of his live in the movie, as it was an important turning point in his life.

Starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the title role and Kiara Advani in the role of the cricketer’s wife Sakshi, ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’ is slated to hit screens on September 30.
