Friends close to Team India captain reveal that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is dating Chennai-based actress Lakshmi Rai,though Rai is learnt to have taken a conscious decision to stick to the clichéd and boring ‘We are good friends’ line. Rai’s family is originally from Mangalore and the actress was earlier linked with Dhoni’s colleague, bowler Sreesanth.
The fact that they are dating came to light when Dhoni told his parents that he was flying to Bangalore for a meeting when he actually flew to Chennai to see Lakshmi. This was on the eve of the India-England Test series. Dhoni’s parents are reportedly still blissfully unaware of the new development in their son’s life.
A close friend of the cricketer says, “They are dating. Dhoni has flown to Chennai at least four times in the last 45 days to see her. Last time he took a day out of his ‘rest days’ in Ranchi just to meet her and have dinner with her. Now if you don’t call that love, what is?”
Apparently Dhoni and Lakshmi met at party organised in Chennai to celebrate the win of Dhoni’s team at an IPL match. Lakshmi was a special invitee there. They met, chatted, and were soon on the dance floor. This is how, Dhoni’s friends say, his whirlwind romance with the actress began.It is also rumoured that Dhoni and Lakhsmi retired to a room after the party, something that has already been denied by Lakhsmi(This line was in the paper but not in the link)
Just a few days ago, Dhoni was spotted having dinner with Lakshmi at a five-star hotel in Chennai when he went there for the meeting to select the Indian team for the England series. After news of the dinner date came out, the couple has become more secretive about its meetings and Lakshmi has gone into denial mode.
Lakshmi, it is learnt, has already bagged and will soon be seen in a Hindi film Hey Gujju which is being produced by a big banner. The shooting of the movie will start early next year. At that time, the actress will temporarily shift base to Mumbai.

MS Dhoni travelled to Chennai earlier this month only to meet you. Are you both seeing each other?
Why is such a noise being made about my meeting him? We just met for coffee in Chennai.
When and how did you two meet?
We were introduced to each other a few months ago, seven months to be precise, though it feels like I've known him for years. Dhoni and I are friends; I don't see anything wrong in meeting up with him when he's in town.
Where did you meet him first?
Dhoni was in Chennai, playing as part of the Super Kings. We happened to be staying at the same hotel. He dropped in at my birthday party. We have stayed in touch ever since.
With such busy schedules, how do you keep in touch?
We understand each others' professional hazards. We are both busy and have weird hours. It's a blessing that he's captaining both the One-day and the Test teams. At least this way, I get to see him more often, even if it's just on TV.
Is there any special gift that Dhoni has given you?
Dhoni doesn't need to impress me with gifts. He's much beyond all that for me. What matters to me is him.
