It looks like Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni are not the only good friends but their respective wives actor Anushka Sharma and Sakshi Singh Dhoni are friends as well. Not because of their husbands, but they are friends since school. Well, we recently came across a couple of throwback pictures which show that Anushka and Sakshi were friends back in school. In the pictures, we see a young Anushka and Sakshi posing for a photo with other friends. While there’s another picture, from their school time where the duo is seen at a school function.
Reportedly, back in the time, when Anushka Sharma's father, Retd. Col. Ajay Kumar Sharma, who is now a retired Army officer, was posted in Assam, she went to St. Mary's School, where Sakshi was also studying. During a 2013 launch event, Anushka had revealed that she and Sakshi used to live in a very small town in Assam and both used to study in the same school. “Sakshi and I lived together in a very small town in Assam. When she told me where she lived, I said wow, I have lived here too! She said I went to this school, I said I went to this school too. And then I found a picture in which Sakshi is dressed as a fairy and I'm dressed in a ghaghara like my favourite idol Madhuri. Sakshi is extremely funny,” the actor said.
After many years, the pictures surfaced online and it is going viral and how! Well, later on, Anushka went on to pursue her acting dreams while Sakshi went on to study Hotel Management.
Now, both of them are successful and happily married to two iconic Indian cricketers. The Zero actor and the cricketer got married on December 11, 2017, in Italy. The couple embraced parenthood in January this year as they were blessed with a daughter. Whereas MS Dhoni and Sakshi got married on July 4, 2010, in Dehradun and they have a 5-year-old daughter named Ziva Singh Dhoni.
