Indian film Superstar Rajnikanth is literally loved in India, especially the southern tip of it. So much that people literally worship him. It is not an overstatement if we say that ‘Rajnikanth’ is the ‘Sachin Tendulkar’ of South India and rightly so.
The man has starred in almost all the super- hit movies the southern region has produced and they say whatever he touches turns into gold. The actor is one of the most celebrated figures of the nation and he was put in an interesting spot in a recent even in Chennai when he was asked to name his favorite cricketer.
While many thought, he might say, Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli, the Superstar took no time and did not hesitate even a bit to take Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s name. He openly stated that ‘Dhoni’ or Thala as they call him in Chennai is his all-time favorite cricketer.
Many cricket pundits have been questioning Dhoni’s position recently but the right-handed wicket-keeper batsman from India has a habit of shutting down his critics by letting his bat do the talking. It would be interesting to see how Dhoni copes with the conditions in South Africa and whether he can make an impact.
Cric Crak feels he certainly will considering the grounds are larger and the singles need to be converted into two’s and two’s into three’s. Meanwhile, we wish more ‘Power’ to both Dhoni and Rajnikanth and hope they bring more accolades to the country in 2018.
