Love, Shaadi aur Rumours — that’s how one can best describe MS Dhoni’s marriage to girlfriend Sakshi Rawat. 24 hours after MS Dhoni’s hush-hush wedding with girlfriend Sakshi Rawat in Dehradun on Sunday night, several rumours — right from the wedding guests to post-wedding bashes — are now doing the rounds.

The couple made a stop in Delhi yesterday, en route to Ranchi, leaving a trail of further speculation. For starters, while it has been claimed that the two studied in the same class in school, sources close to Dhoni say, "There’s a substantial age gap between the two... how could they possibly be in the same class?" HT City debunks other rumours around what is being called the wedding of the decade.

Theory # 1
Bipasha Basu and John Abraham are throwing a grand bash on July 7 at their place for the newlyweds. Also that Bips played Cupid and was the one to introduce Sakshi to Mahi in a party post her film, Race.
Truth: This so called match making and party is all media’s imaginative streak. I have kept no reception for Dhoni on the 7th. People are hounding me for this. It’s semi finals on that day and am just watching football and there is no Mahi coming please!
—Bipasha Basu

Theory # 2
The bride wore a bespoke wedding churidaar-kurta, custom made by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Truth: Sakshi came in as just another random customer to my Kolkata store and purchased a simple traditional lehenga off the shelf. The salesgirl later told me about it. I didn’t even meet her.”
—Sabyasachi Mukherjee

Theory # 3
Farah Khan was one of the guests at the wedding and was right beside the bride, wherever she went.
Truth: God, some idiot has put out this news. I never attended Dhoni’s wedding. Not true!
—Farah Khan
