Relieved a lot that Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has tied the knot is Lakshmi Rai. The actress, who has been often linked with the cricketer, says she is happy that her “good friend” has entered the wedlock with his childhood friend Sakshi Singh Rawat. “I knew long back that Dhoni was seeing Sakshi. But I had to keep it under wraps because he did not wish to talk about his relationship at that time. I wish the couple a very happy married life,” Lakshmi Rai says.
“No one believed me when I said that the relationship between me and Dhoni was nothing more than friendship. The truth has come out now. I am now happy and relieved a lot,” the Belgaum beauty adds.
On Sunday, Dhoni’s love for speed was once again on display, as he tied the nuptial knot with Sakshi in a private ceremony attended only by family members and close friends, at a farmhouse near Dehra Dun.
Within a day of the 28-year-old wicket-keeper batsman got engaged to Sakshi, a 23-year-old hotel management student, at a private ceremony on Saturday night, the couple got married at Vishranti Resort, located in Lower Kandoli village, 25 km from Dehra Dun.
