Dhananjay was born in Shriwal district of Satara.
After facing hardship at the age of 16 after his father, personnel in the Bombay Fire Brigade department expired Dhananjay shifted to Belgaum after passing class 7th to join Boy Sports Company and ever since there’s no looking back.
He works in the Indian Army.
He first picked a hockey stick in 1994 and since then he is obsessed with it.
From the age of 14 he was in the school in Belapur and it was during the computer testing that the institution found out that he was outstanding in physical fitness and had an aptitude for hockey. So he had to undergo training for three years and since then there has been no looking back. He represented the country in junior World Cup and got the opportunity to play in the senior team in the South Asian Games and now in the world cup.
