Answer by Puneet Tripathi on Quora:

What is Rahul Dravid like in real life?

So this is exactly what happened with a guy from office who was travelling from Bangalore to Delhi via flight in Economy class.

He got a window seat and a person comes and sits on the seat next to his. He looks quite like Dravid, so office guy asked him if he was Rahul Dravid. And got the reply “Yes”.

He got a window seat and a person comes and sits on the seat next to his. He looks quite like Dravid, so office guy asked him if he was Rahul Dravid. And got the reply “Yes”.He was amazed to see that Rahul Dravid was travelling in Economy and was wearing a cotton pant and full sleeve shirt. Quite a down to earth guy, right?

But the story doesn’t end here. When people saw him a couple of them started coming to them to ask for autograph and photograph. He politely told everyone that people are still boarding so do not block the passage, instead lets move to the li’l empty area and click the photos. He got photos with everyone who asked him and if a photo was not good he asked for another.

Such a responsible and fan loving person he is. Dravid asked the storyteller his purpose of visit and he told it was for an interview in an IT company. Dravid wished him luck and had a small chat about how did it go.

Then he took out an ages old ipod and plugged the earphones and started listening to music. He responded and replied to one and all who came to meet or greet him.

He is indeed the best of all the celebrities I have heard stories about.

Brett Lee said it quite right. “If you can’t get along with Dravid, you’re struggling in life“.

Awesomest Dravid!!

    • Yeah, a perfect gentleman, indeed! I’ve stopped watching/following cricket much myself around 10 years back, but I was still sad that he had quit playing cricket!
