At the airport’s check-in counter, the former Team India captain took a breather to take a selfie with fans who were eager to get a glimpse of the all-rounder. Looking dapper in a striped shirt, with a light-blue sweater, Dada, as he is popularly known, didn’t disappoint. The CISF personnel, in charge of airport security across the country, also seemed quite happy to see the former captain in a new role.
"At the check in airport of Bangalore.. love of people makes u feel so grateful," Ganguly posted on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

And that tweet, since, has got 79.9K Likes, and has been retweeted 4.7L times, and counting. Fans, of course, couldn’t stop raving about the Kodak moment, with some even calling it an impromptu “press conference.”
The 47-year-old Ganguly was in the IT city to meet his former India teammate and National Cricket Academy's chief Rahul Dravid at the Chinnaswamy stadium. He also visited the proposed site for the new NCA building in Bengaluru, and discussed the organisation’s roadmap with Dravid.
