Dinesh Karthik is the KKR captain
It’s all work and little play for Raima Sen
Calcutta/Mumbai: Appointed captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) with Robin Uthappa as his deputy, wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik wants to emulate India skipper Virat Kohli and lead from the front. "Virat is a captain who leads from the front and leads by his action. He is somebody who leads with his performance and that is something that I will try and emulate. "I want to lead by example rather than talking. I want to go to the ground and show with my scores or the way I play," Karthik, who's also in the India squad for the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka, said on Sunday. Karthik might not look to be too aggressive, but he feels there's aggression deep inside him, something he wouldn't like to change while leading KKR in the coming IPL. "I am not aggressive outwardly, but that doesn't mean I am not aggressive inside. While playing a game, I am one of those guys who doesn't even speak to the opponents, before the game or in the lead up to the game."
It’s all work and little play for Raima Sen right now Raima Sen is currently stationed at Mekliganj in Cooch Behar, shooting for Bengali film Sitara, directed by Asish Roy. A couple of days before that she was in Delhi spending time with sister Riya and brother-in-law Shivam. In between she was in Pune and Zurich too! t2 caught up with Raima for a quick chat as she looks forward to her Friday release Kaya. With you, it’s a catch-me-if-you-can situation. You are hardly in India and least of all in Calcutta! True. I am hardly in Calcutta these days. Actually my Hindi film Vodka Diaries released and I was busy with the promotions in Bombay. In between I went to Delhi to catch up with Riya and then to Pune. I flew to Zurich for a short holiday too. You are slowly becoming a wanderer like Riya... Well, all of us in our family love to travel. Nowadays I am in Calcutta only if there’s a film shoot or a script-reading session.
