Former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni arrived to his hometown Ranchi on Thursday night. Dhoni has come to Ranchi for the first time after army duty in the difficult terrain of Awantipura in South Kashmir. The 38-year-old greeted the fans and also clicked selfie with them. Dhoni was seen riding his new jeep Grand Cherokee. Its worth mentioning that his wife Sakshi posted a picture of the car on Instagram and wrote “miss u Mahi”.
Sakshi went to the Birsa Munda airport in Ranchi to receive her husband who was returning from Jaipur but some personal issues are troubling her. Sakshi has been staying in Ranchi for the past few days and power cuts are not going well with her. She took to twitter to express her unhappiness.
“People in Ranchi experience power cuts every single day. It ranges from four to seven hours daily. There has been no electricity for the past 5 hours today [September 19]. There is no reason for power cut today as the weather is good and there is not festival,” she wrote in a tweet.
