Is MS Dhoni’s ex-girlfriend Priyanka Jha alive? The film MS Dhoni: The Untold Story which is the biopic of India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni tells his story until the year 2011 when India won the ICC Cricket World Cup against Sri Lanka in Mumbai. The movie, starring Sushant Singh Rajput as MS Dhoni, traces the cricketer’s journey as a railway man and then wicket-keeper batsman who goes on to become India’s most successful captain for the international side. But the film also showcases the cricketer’s love life, with both his first girlfriend Priyanka Jha and his wife Sakshi Dhoni playing a part in his success. We like the fact that the film has not left out the love story of MS Dhoni and Priyanka Jha. And all this while people were even more intrigued with their romance because there were reports that Priyanka Jha died in a car accident and MS Dhoni was never the same man.
But now, we hear that there may be a twist to the story. Priyanka Jha may or may not have died, which means she may be alive, at least in the film! Well, we are not playing with the emotions of cricketer MS Dhoni; we heard this story from one of the actresses of the film, Disha Patani. She is the very same actress who plays MS Dhoni’s girlfriend Priyanka Jha in the Neeraj Pandey biopic! When we asked Disha Patani in an exclusive FB Live with India.com about her character’s death, she said, “No! Nothing like that happens.” She refused to divulge more details about Priyanka Jha, as that is the part about the film that has been kept under wraps. “Watch the film to know that!” said Disha Patani.
The legend goes that when MS Dhoni was in his early 20s and playing for the India A side, he found love in Priyanka Jha. The two were to get married, Miss Right and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. But even as he was scoring runs after runs on field and was noticed for the national cricket team by the then captain Sourav Ganguly, tragedy struck Dhoni in his personal life. His girlfriend Priyanka Jha passed away in a tragic accident.
Of course, MS Dhoni was shattered and was in mourning for a year, according a report in Mumbai Mirror. But he moved on from his tragedy to focus on his career and went on to become India’s most successful cricket captain and one of the best wicket-keepers we have had. He also found love again and married Sakshi Dhoni (played by Kiara Advani in the film). This story of MS Dhoni and Priyanka Jha has never been denied by the cricketer nor confirmed. So, we cannot wait to watch MS Dhoni: The Untold Story on its release on September 30 to figure out the true story! Or at least what’s in the film!
For now, watch the song Phir Kabhi from MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and enjoy a glimpse of the charming love story of MS Dhoni and Priyanka Jha, as played by Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Patani!
