Lady luck evades Chennai Super Kings at IPL, 2012


Trisha Dhanya

It was a dull weekend for Chennaites, as their Super Kings tumbled out in the finals. They posed a handsome 190 for 4 , winning the toss and choosing to bat. Things looked even better getting Gautham Gambhir knocked out in the very first over, but the double time winners failed to blow the victory whistle. Amidst all the drama, lady luck simply wasn’t favoring the CSK team off field too.

Bangalore actress Dhanya Balakrishna vented her anger out on Chennai reaching the play offs saying, “Dear Chennai, you beg for water, we give! You beg for electricity, we give!Your people come and occupy our beautiful city and kocha paduthify it, we allow and now you were at mercy to go to playoffs, and we let be!!! Like this you begging-  we giving.Ungalukku vekkame illaya da??”  Dhanya has acted in Surya’s 7aam Arivu and the 100 day hit Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi. When her comments went viral, the actress put up an apology saying, “I am leaving Chennai and the Tamil film industry. Hope this decision will end the abusive brutality and emotional torture for everyone concerned with it. I don’t intend to come back; I do not want people abusing each other and me. I have even cancelled all my current shooting obligations. This is it.” Meanwhile Kollywood’s reigning queen Trisha was on the receiving end, spotted with Kolkata Knightriders supporters at the MA Chidambaram stadium during the finals. On knowing her fans were hurt Trisha said, “Hi guys. Dont make it a big issue. I will always support only CSK but have sum KKR friends. Let us have a large heart and be happy for others.”  A beaten Chennai Super Kings, neither had lady luck shining nor the ball in their court, losing out to Shahrukh Khan’s Kolkata team, in a thrilling finale.
