Dhoni didn't disappoint his fans either, as he waved to them from the balcony of his house with his wife by his side. "It is a double treat for us. Dhoni got married four days ago and today being his birthday," Times of India quoted a fan as saying.
It maybe recalled that Dhoni was linked to Indian celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Asin Thottumkal and Lakshmi Rai in the past but he surprised everyone, including the media, by marrying Sakshi on the following day of the engagement.
