People cannot thank Perry enough for fulfilling the dreams of lakhs of RCB fans and finally taking the team to the Finals. Social media has been filled with several videos, in tribute to ‘Perry’ who fans are now lovingly calling ‘Perry Perry’.

Many even devoted the very popular song ‘Cheri Cheri Lady’ to her name as ‘Perry Perry Lady’. The lyrics of the hit song goes as, ‘Cheri, Cheri Lady going through emotion; Love is where you find it, listen to your heart. Cheri, Cheri lady, living in devotion, it’s always like the first time.”

Earlier, a video of jubilant fans chanting ‘RCB RCB’ and ‘Perry Perry’ inside the Delhi Metro went viral. While RCB had posted a total of only 135 runs and were on the verge on the losing the match, Perry’s last minute heroics reduced MI to downfall.
