Lakshmi Rai (Kanchana and Adhinayakudu fame) is no doubt the favourite child of controversy. The actress is often in news for some reason or the other. And the buzz which made her popular throughout the country was the one that linked her with Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Though the actress maintained that the Indian cricket captain was just a friend of hers and that there was nothing between them other than friendship, gossip factories continued to dish out juicy stories about them.
However, the big end to the buzz came when Dhoni married Sakshi Singh Rawat in 2010. Lakshmi Rai, who is now busy with Shiva Thaandavam, says, "I don't want to find myself in controversies again."
"Whenever I meet Dhoni in public functions, we part away after greeting each other saying hello. Some people are keen about spreading bad news about me. I don't want to give an opportunity to them."
