MS Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings – two names which have become synonymous after all these years of the Indian Premier League. The CSK-skipper has been accepted by Chennai and is fondly known as Thala. The rapturous cheers for every Dhoni-movement on the field is reflective of his huge sway over the crowd.
“It’s a big nickname that they have given me. It feels really special. I didn’t realize that it was part of the first CSK song. The way I got accepted and the whole of Tamil Nadu — don’t call my name, they call me ‘Thala’. It’s very nice and they have always supported not only me but the whole team,” Dhoni said.

There is one more icon in Tamilnadu who is fondly called as “Thala” by his fans and cinema lovers. He is none other than actor “Ajith Kumar” who has huge fan base across India. Since his blockbuster movie “Dheena” he was called as “Thala” by his fans as there would be a dialogue taking place referring him as “Thala”.
Though many fans of Ajithkumar accepted Dhoni as “Thala” as he hails from completely different field, some fans irked on Dhoni being called as “Thala”. They expressed their disappointment through Social media. Check out some of their reactions here :

As both the personalities are leading a successful career in their respective fields, it would be much more healthier if both the icon’s fans gets united and support each other as they both are trying hard to entertain the people of Tamilnadu.
