Club Mahindra, the flagship brand of Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Ltd., hosted an Evening of Conversation with one of India’s most prolific wicketkeeper batsman, Dinesh Karthik. This exclusive event was hosted under the aegis of Club Mahindra’s unique platform, ‘The Stage’, at Taj Coromandel Chennai on February 26th, 2023. This event witnessed more than 1000 guests & members of Club Mahindra who were exclusively invited for the event.
The event gave fans a chance to interact with Dinesh Karthik and hear his insights into his successful cricket career, his fitness regimen, his personal life, and his travel experiences. The audience also had an opportunity to participate in a question-and-answer session with the cricketer, which provided an understanding into his life on and off the pitch.
The highlight of the event was undoubtedly the rapid-fire Q&A session, who provided a fascinating glimpse into his personal and professional life which kept the audience on the edge of their seats. .When asked about his recent watch list, Karthik responded by mentioning two popular shows – Farzi and Patal Lok. He then went on to answer the age-old question of Thala vs. Thalapathy, stating that he preferred the Thalapathy. He was also asked to choose between two renowned South Indian actors, while Prakash Raj was his pick over SJ Surya. The cricketer, who is wedded to squash champion Dipika Pallikal, spoke candidly about his personal life beyond the cricket field. Despite their busy schedules, both DK and Dipika manage to take two vacations a year, where DK visits her during her tournaments and they take a brief break together before the next event.
In a particularly intriguing moment, Karthik was asked to rank Indian cricket captains in order of their leadership skills. He responded by listing out the top four, with MS Dhoni taking the top spot, followed by Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Sourav Ganguly. Finally, Karthik was asked to weigh in on the debate surrounding the best batsman in the world, with the options being Steve Smith, Babar Azam, Joe Root, and Virat Kohli himself. Karthik did not hesitate to declare Virat Kohli as the best among the four, a decision that was likely met with cheers from his many fans. Overall, the Q&A session was a riveting and informative experience for all those in attendance.
