Ruturaj Gaikwad’s wife on MS Dhoni
“MS Dhoni’s aura is something different. You cannot call him bhaiyya or anything. When you are meeting him, you end up calling him sir. But he is so humble and down to earth, it’s unbelievable. His sense of humour is amazing, si he tries best to keep the atmosphere light. I had met him on and off but I got an opportunity to meet him properly after the final. He treats everyone like family. Even I felt like a family. Whether it was him (Ruturaj) or me, we were on the road for two months and he made us feel at home,” Utkarsha Pawar said.
After CSK won the IPL 2023 against Gujarat Titans in the final match, pictures of CSK players and their families celebrating on the field became very popular online. There was a special video of Jadeja hugging his wife Rivaba, and another sweet video showed Sakshi Dhoni and Ziva asking Dhoni for a big hug, and he agreed. Another nice video that’s now famous shows Gaikwad’s wife Utkarsha Pawar with Dhoni. In the video, Utkarsha gives Dhoni a warm hug when they meet, and then she touches his feet to show respect and seek his blessings.
