Sakshi Dhoni, Disha Patani, MS Dhoni, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story Disha Patani made her Bollywood debut with MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, which released on September 30.

Actor Disha Patani is one of the few actors who made her entry in Bollywood industry with such a performance oriented film, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. Though her role didn’t attract a lot of eyeballs, Disha is happy about the few reviews her character has got. Mahendra Singh Dhoni might have reserved his comments about newcomer Disha Patani’s performance in his biopic, but the actress reveals the Indian captain’s wife Sakshi was forthcoming in praising her work. Disha had a small but pivotal role in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, in which she played Dhoni’s late girlfriend, whom he dated in the beginning of his career.

“Dhoni is very shy and reserved so, he does not say anything… But his wife, Sakshi, talks a lot and is very adorable. She told me that she liked me in the film and she was very happy to see me. I am sure Dhoni also liked me,” the 21-year-old actor said in an interview here.

Disha spoke on the sidelines of the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week, where she walked the ramp for couturiers Nandita Mahtani, Bhavana Pandey and Dolly Sidhwani’s collaboration ‘Love Generation’. When asked her personal style, the actress said she is a tomboy and hence likes wearing casuals, “Though I love sarees and feel a woman looks most beautiful in a saree, my personal style statement is casual because I am more tomboyish. I don’t really wear sarees and suits.”
