Former Indian cricket Team’s skipper Rahul Dravid is surely an inspiration for many young players and during his playing days, he had a huge fan following, especially among the girls. Many girls used to like him because of his good behaviour and innocent looks.
Recently, Dravid recounted a memory of his past in a candid chat with stand up cricket comedian Vikram Sathaye, for his show ‘What the Duck’. On the show, Dravid shared an interesting story about one of his female fan who was not willing to leave his house.
When Sathaye asked, “Every mother wanted you to be her son-in-law. Somewhere, you gave an impression that you would make a great husband. And your colleagues tell me that you have a lot of female following. Any interesting stories you faced?”

He started, “I had come back from a long tour and I had gone off to sleep after reaching home in the morning and I was sleeping through the afternoon. I got up in the evening and my mom said, ‘there is a fan waiting for you.’ She has come all the way from Hyderabad and been waiting there for about an hour and my parents had given her tea and coffee. She was just sitting there waiting for me. I went there and gave her the usual autograph, photograph and said, Hello, How are you? Oh, you have come from Hyderabad. It’s great.”
But the situation turned into a delicate one as she refused to leave Dravid’s home and said she came from Hyderabad to stay at his home. He was shocked to hear that and then asked “How is that possible? Where are your parents?”
Luckily Dravid got his parents’ help who sorted out the situation.
The story was too shocking and had a tense moment too. But moving towards the funnier part Dravid said, “I think it was a little bit of wake-up call for my parents as well. It was one of those things, which was not ideal kind of situation. But, it all ended up well. So, it was ok.”
