MS Dhoni is undoubtedly one of the most efficient captains in the world. He is one of the most remarkable people on the face of the earth and it does no harm to say that he is quite amazing as a person too. MS Dhoni has many nicknames – Mahi, Captain Cool, MSD, etc, but it’s Thala which he is the most famous for during the two months of the Indian Premier League every year. Thala, which means head or leader in Tamil, is what the Chennai Super Kings fans call Dhoni and that is certainly true. Chennai Super Kings is the only team to reach IPL finals 8 times and win 3 titles under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
On the contrary, we have Indian actor Ajith Kumar who works predominantly in Tamil cinemas. The film Dheena marked the beginning of a new image of Ajith as an action hero who would appeal to the masses and earned the nickname Thala. But he didn’t become Thala overnight. It has been a constant struggle for the actor, who hails from a modest background, to make it big in the Tamil film industry. His flawless acting and superb action sequences made him one of the best actors. Thala Ajith Kumar is extremely down to earth and binds together his team as a leader does.
Both these personalities are big names in their respective professions. Let us know who is the real Thala according to you.
