Former India cricketer MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni has revealed some hilarious facts about the Ranchi-born’s love for video games likes PUBG (now BGMI) and Call of Duty (COD).
Several photos have surfaced on the internet where Dhoni could be spotted playing this popular online game alongside fellow team India members. The 39-year-old could be seen many times playing PUBG while waiting at the airports with players like Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Yadav.
Recently, in interaction with Dhoni’s Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Sakshi revealed that MSD plays these games to divert his mind.
“You know, Mahi’s got a thinking brain, it doesn’t rest. So I think when he plays video games like Call of Duty or be it PUBG or whatever, I think it just helps him divert his mind that’s it and which is a good thing,” said Sakshi Dhoni.
Sakshi further mentioned that PUBG has literally “encroached” her bed as Dhoni has started sleep-talking also about PUBG nowadays.
“I mean, I don’t really get irritated that it’s got to the bedroom and that nowadays PUBG has encroached my bed literally. At times I feel like he’s talking to me and then he’s on the headphones and talking to all the people that are playing. Then he’s sleep-talking also about PUBG nowadays!” she added.
“I have seen the world through Mahi”
Yesterday (July 4) also marked the 11th wedding anniversary of the adorable couple. Sakshi talked about their journey as a couple in that video uploaded on the social media accounts of CSK. The Guwahati-born highlighted how they both have been together since her college days and she has seen the world through Mahi (MSD).
“I have seen the world through Mahi, to be honest. I went to college and within a month I got married. So whatever I have learned, I have learned it with him or through him.
“I am the only one who can upset him. I have that strain in me. You know, he’s like calm about everything so I am the only one who can provoke him or upset him because I am the closest to him,” Sakshi mentioned.
