Lakshmi Rai denies dating Dhoni, Sreesanth

Telugu sensation Lakshmi Rai spotted dining with captain of Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni in a hotel in Chennai few days back. But the actress denies being in any sort of love relationship with the cricketer and claiming all the rumors as baseless which carries no truth. She rather accepts that both are only good friends. "We struck a chord during the IPL, but just like any other friends, we don't need to keep in touch every day since we understand each other's professional commitments," she says.

Rumor also spread like a fire in the jungle that she was also in a serious relationship with Indian fast bowler Sreesanth. Again Lakshami vehemently denied quashing it off as only a baseless rumor. It is said that Sreesanth visited Lakshmi Rai on the set of a Kannnda movie.

"Being a celebrity comes with its own share of troubles," says Team India’s angry young boy, S Sreesanth, adding: "People need to know me before they judge me. I really don’t understand why I get linked with actors. I am just a little friendly with them, but that’s what gets me into trouble. The truth is, none of the actors I have been linked with — Surveen Chawla, Lakshmi Rai and even Priyanka Chopra — have been my girlfriends."
