Mahi loves the Army – Sakshi
Speaking to IANS on the couple’s decision to produce a web series, Sakshi said, “I have paid more attention to the process of putting a thought and idea into creative action. The joy of seeing a concept being brought to life on screen keeps me engrossed, and we ensure the process is quality driven.”
It is noteworthy that Dhoni is called Alpha and Sakshi is called Alpha 1 of the company. “Mahi’s love for the Army is a well known fact. We thought of tweaking the designations and adding a quirky touch by giving ranks instead. It is an extension of our respect and admiration for the Armed Forces”, Sakshi explained.
Sakshi also talked about life in the situation of the pandemic and how it has changed everyday-life. She said, “The bond with my family and our dogs became stronger with the ample amount of quality time I got with them. Also, botany and organic farming piqued my interest during this period, resulting in me starting my company.”
Sakshi also revealed that she took up writing during the lockdown. “I got a lot of me-time to explore aspects of my personality. I am an expressive person by nature and writing poems became a hobby through which I could emote. The topic could be anything, from the happenings around the world to just conveying some motherly love. Writing now comes naturally to me and is a practice I thoroughly enjoy,” she shared.
Before signing off Sakshi expressed how much she missed her husband saying, “I am not really missing attending IPL matches 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.”
