No cricket lovers would have forgotten that face in the gallery shown on television during the last hours of the IPL final match between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant. The face of a grandmother praying with folded hands. The match did end like the granny in Green sari; a Mumbai Indians fan wished. Mumbai team won for a run and became IPL champions.
Many trolls flooded the media anticipating whether she would be brought to Kochi during ISL and expressing the wish to see Kerala Blasters crowned. At the same time the Bollywood star Abhishek Bachan revealed the identity of that grandmother. Junior Bachan tweeted that the lucky star behind Mumbai’s success was none other than the mother of Mumbai team’s owner Neetha Ambani.
Abhishek Bachan also mentions in his tweet that the granny’s name is Poornima bai Dalal, although she is popularly known as Nani.
@BuzzFeedIndia That is Mrs. Ambani's mother. Popularly referred to as "nani". The lucky charm.
