Lakshmi Rai who was the unofficial 'Cheer Leader" for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during last year"s IPL was in Chennai for the photo shoot of her upcoming film Naan Avanillai - part 2.
Lakshmi Rai, a big lover of cricket seems to be disappointed a lot due to the IPL's decision of shifting the matches to South Africa. But she is planning to attend at least a few matches during her forthcoming shooting trip to Europe.
Is there any special invite for Lakshmi from her close boy friend M.S.Dhoni?
"Oh... please stop this. We are still good friends only. We have never crossed our limits at any stage. But the media has created so much controversy between me and Dhoni that it is high time that I clear it. I have always been interested in sports but I started liking cricket only after IPL began.
I had never been to a stadium to watch a match until the IPL began. The organisers wanted me to attend matches regularly, provided the time is there. The media, of course, kept highlighting my presence" she confesses.
Answering to a question about her life partner, the actress said that she believes in destiny and dossn't know who is going to be her life partner.
Currently, Lakshmi is busy with four films in Tamil including Simbhu Devan"s Erunbu Kottayil Murattu Singham where she plays the role of a cowboy and two Malayalam films.
