5 Facts about Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s ex-girlfriend Raai Laxmi


Did you know, south actress Raai Laxmi was dating MS Dhoni?

Though MS Dhoni never said anything about his relationship with Raai Laxmi in public, it was the latter who said that the two dated each other.


Long back she was in the news for allegedly dating MS Dhoni. Raai Laxmi said both she and Dhoni have moved on in life concentrating on their respective lives, but she found it strange that people are still talking about it. 

According to Hindustan Times, the actress once dated Indian skipper Dhoni. It is more than 5 years ago when the actress dated the cricketer. In an earlier interview with the leading daily, she said, “I was the brand ambassador for the IPL team that he was a part of and we were together for less than a year. We had never committed to each other and never thought of getting married either, so I don’t understand why people would talk about us. It didn’t work for us, so we moved on.”

When Dhoni’s biopic titled MS Dhoni: The Untold Story was to be released, Raai Laxmi was reportedly anxious to know if the film involves anything to do with her. During an interview with entertainment portal SpotBoye, she was asked about Dhoni, to which she responded with this strange question, “Who’s he?”.

Really, ‘Who’s he?’ is kind of a silly response. Dhoni is the man who led the Indian cricket team that won two World Cups and broke a lot of records.

However, to save her from more embarrassment, she said, “This needs to have a full stop. It was a long time ago, he is happily married now, he has a daughter… Certain things don’t work out, and then you have to move on. People had quickly taken it to a level that I was going to get married to him, and that was simply not true. The hype got us into an awkward space and that is why I do not talk to the media much about this, but I am talking a bit now. I do not want to speak about him in detail because I respect him a lot.”

When asked if she was crestfallen as the relationship didn’t work, she replied, “It was not in that space and the media wrote about it before that.I have dated four other men after that but nobody is talking about them. It’s about Dhoni, just because it is sensational news.”

After Dhoni tied the knot with Sakshi Singh Rawat in 2010, the rumours of link-up came to an end.
