Anushka Sharma and Sakshi Dhoni are the wives of two of India’s most popular cricketers. Anushka Sharma is married to Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, where, Sakshi Dhoni is married to former Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. But other than being star wives they have another connection between them. The two studied in the same school when they were growing up.


According to the reports, the two were schoolmates at St Mary’s School, Margherita in Assam. A fan club shared their pictures that are still taking the rounds on the internet. One of the photos is from 1st standard and other is from a school function where Anushka is dressed in bright pink ghaghara choli while Sakshi is seen in a fairytale angel dress. In another picture, the two are seen spending some good time with each other and some friends.

As per these reports, during a launch event in 2013, Anushka Sharma opened up about meeting Sakshi after years they left school. Anushka quoted, “Sakshi and I lived together in a very small town in Assam. When she told me where she lived, I said wow, I have lived here too! She said I went to this school, I said I went to this school too.”

The actress further added, “And then I found a picture in which Sakshi is dressed as a fairy and I’m dressed in a Ghaghara like my favorite idol Madhuri. Sakshi is extremely funny.”

Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma was last seen in Anand L. Rai’s Zero along with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
