The tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently ruling the charts across the cricket-frenzy nation. The tournament is in its initial league stage and the excitement levels has been off the roof. Whether it’s bars, social gathering or even office breaks, everyone just can’t seem to stop talking about it.
The months of April and May symbolise a phase where everything else becomes secondary, with India’s cash-rich T20 spectacle stealing the limelight. And, understandably, people from other sectors mainly fashion and Bollywood join hands with cricket to ride the IPL wave.
With cricket becoming the main course for any gossip or discourse, the obvious topic seems to be “the favourite cricketer” of a celebrity. And, who wouldn’t want to know which cricketer rules the heart of Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif.
But unlike the other B-Town celebs who have particularly developed a liking towards Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni, Kat seems to have a thing for gentlemen. And, if you’ve followed cricket in the past, you’d know that no cricketer (current or former) can match the mannerisms of Rahul Dravid.
“I like Rahul Dravid, who I believe is a true gentleman… He never seems to get upset, angry or hyper and having said that I have never spoken more than three words with him. He is very shy”, Katrina revealed.
The 33-year-old hottie has had her fair share of IPL exposure during the promotional campaigns for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the past. Apart from watching the RCB matches, Katrina also interacted with Dravid during the promo shoots when he was leading the Bangalore team in 2008.
The comments of the Bollywood actress came hours after she made her debut on Instagram. Katrina had been teasing her Facebook fans for a while, before finally revealing her new address on the social media.
