I’m a CSK fan for life: actor Suriya tells Suresh Raina

Actor Suriya, whose NGK is ready for release next week, took to Twitter for a live chat on Monday evening, and was skimming through questions when he got a surprise query: from Chennai Super Kings cricketer Suresh Raina.

“Who is your favourite cricketer from Chennai Super Kings and why?” was the query.

Suriya, happy about getting a query from a popular cricketer, responded, “I always call him ‘maapley’,” he said, “So sweet of you to take time out and ask me a question. I still remember the first time we met. You came and said hello to me, though I missed you, the photo we have taken together is something that is memorable. I am sure you will agree with me too – Dhoni is my favourite cricketer from the Chennai Super Kings. I am a CSK fan for life,” he said.

Raina, who has been with the Chennai franchise for a long while, is popular with the city’s cricket fans; he has been called ‘Chinna Thala’ by them.
