Gorgeous Shruti Hassan, who had supported the Chennai Rhinos last season, was one of the brand ambassadors of recently concluded Celebrity Cricket League (CCL 4). The actress was present at the concluding Karnataka Bulldozers versus Kerala Strikers' match played in Hyderabad on Sunday (February 23). Here comes a shocking news, the actress, who was supposed to congratulate the players, ignored them at the presentation ceremony!
A source says, "If you had observed Shruti Hassan's body language, many would have noticed that she was not comfortable on stage. Many raised eyebrows when she snubbed Karnataka Bulldozers as she did not even bother to congratulate them. She did not even shake hands with not even one player from the team."
"Though it did not bother the Sandalwood players, onlookers were surprised at her attitude of disrespecting the Kannada players.
