In turn, Rai was regularly visiting all the matches played by Chennai Super Kings at the MAC Stadium and was seen rooting cheerfully for her 'favourite" cricketer. After seeing all these developments, media came to a conclusion and published reports.
Rai said the way the media had been targeting her is quite unfair. "First, they published 'exclusives' on me and linked with a co-star and now with famous cricketer Dhoni. I don't know from where they manage to get such kind of gossips. Maintaining a good friendship with cricket stars like Dhoni is not a sin. It is a pride to a fan like me."
