MS Dhoni returned to competitive cricket after a hiatus of 14 months in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League [IPL]. But unlike the previous seasons of the cash-rich league, the former Indian captain does not have his wife Sakshi Dhoni and daughter Ziva, cheering for him from the stadium.
The current edition of the IPL is being played behind closed doors due to the onslaught of Covid-19 and while some franchises like RCB and MI have allowed cricketers to bring their families to the bio-bubble, for Sakshi it would have been difficult to spend over two months in the bubble with daughter Ziva. And, while she is missing the physical presence of MS Dhoni, she isn’t missing watching the games from the stadium.
“I am not really missing it (attending IPL in a stadium) as I am following it diligently on TV, but I miss my husband. Honestly, it would’ve been difficult for Ziva and me to be in the bubble for over two months,” Sakshi Dhoni told Inside Sport.
MSD and his wife Sakshi Dhoni planning to venture into the entertainment industry
MS Dhoni retired from international cricket after having taken a 14-month break from the game and if Sakshi Dhoni is to be believed, she and MSD are planning to venture into the entertainment industry by producing films on the OTT platform.
“I have paid more attention to the process of putting thought and idea into creative action. The joy of seeing a concept being brought to life on the screen keeps me engrossed, and we ensure the process is quality driven. When we were developing ‘Roar Of The Lion’, we thought it was the perfect time to venture into the entertainment industry.” Sakshi Dhoni revealed.
“I also have gotten in touch with facets of myself that were dormant. I feel like, instead of my parenting style evolving, I am getting schooled with Ziva with all the online classes I attend with her. The need of the hour during lockdown was to find innovative techniques to make children do their homework, and that was my method as well,” she explained.
