Dhoni gives very little information about his personal life.

Actually, Dhoni had a daughter in his life before marrying Sakshi, whom Mahi loved dearly, but an accident separated the two. This is also mentioned in the movie ‘MS Dhoni The Untold Story’ which is based on Dhoni’s personal life. Even Dhoni’s fans couldn’t stop themselves from getting sad when revelations about his personal life came out after this 2016 Bollywood film. (MS Dhoni Birthday)
Everything related to Dhoni was shown on the big screen in this movie. Dhoni’s first girlfriend is also mentioned in the film and many aspects related to their lives are revealed. Dhoni’s new love story in the film was the most talked about.
Love is something that when you make your debut as a young person, you automatically fall in love with someone. Same thing happened with Dhoni. According to friends, when Dhoni was 20-21 years old, he fell in love with a girl named Priyanka Jha. Dhoni was so serious about this relationship that he dreamed of spending his life with Priyanka. In 2002, Dhoni was struggling to establish himself in the Indian cricket team. Meanwhile, he met a girl named Priyanka Jha. Gradually the acquaintance turned into a close friendship. After that the couple became closer to each other. Both Dhoni and Priyanka fell in love without knowing each other.
Meanwhile, Dhoni was selected in the India ‘A’ team for the tour of Zimbabwe and Kenya in 2003-04. Dhoni showed his skills as a wicketkeeper with 7 catches, 4 stumpings against Zimbabwe XI at Harare Sports Club. In a triangular tournament involving Kenya, India A and Pakistan A, Dhoni scored a blistering half-century to lead India to victory as they chased down Pakistan’s 223-run challenge. Adding to his brilliance, he scored two centuries in the same tournament scoring 120 and 119. Dhoni scored a total of 362 runs in 7 matches at an average of 72.40. His performance in this series caught the attention of the then captain Sourav Ganguly. However, India ‘A’ coach Sandeep Patil recommended Dhoni for a place in the Indian cricket team as a wicketkeeper and batsman.
However, even before his selection in the Indian team, a big storm came in Dhoni’s life which gave all Dhoni a big shock. After this tour Dhoni returned to India. He gets a bad news that his girlfriend Priyanka Jha has died in an accident. It was a big shock for Dhoni. He did not recover from it for the next several months. But as time went on, he turned this weakness into his strength and started the next struggle in life like a warrior.
During the ODI series against Pakistan in 2004–05, Dhoni created history by scoring 148 off just 123 balls in the second match played at Visakhapatnam. This innings was the longest by any Indian wicketkeeper in ODI cricket. By the end of the same year, Dhoni broke his own record. He once again shocked the cricket world by playing an innings of 183 runs against Sri Lanka.
