Maradona to turn out in typical Kerala attire?
Maradona's friend, industrialist Bobby Chemmanur, at whose invitation the renowned footballer is visiting Kerala, said: "Yes, we will tell him to dress in the traditional dhoti and shirt when he comes here."
Maradona will arrive here Tuesday evening from Dubai and attend three functions the next day - the opening of a showroom of Chemmanur International Jewellers, the inauguration of helicopter services of Chemmanur Airlines, and a little playful football at the Municipal Stadium here.
The organisers are apprehensive about the rain gods playing spoilsport. A massive crowd is expected at the Municipal Stadium here, where the master footballer is expected to conduct a dribbling session.
As Maradona`s 52nd birthday falls Oct 30, the organisers will also arrange for the cutting of a special 25-kg football-shaped cake.
Soon after the function, Maradona is set to return to Dubai from the Kozhikode airport.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
