"This is me the fake IPL player or FIP as you sometimes call me. It's been four weeks, 43 posts and about 70,000 comments till now. Behind all the grease paint, I am just another faceless guy. I grew up in Delhi, where I learnt my art. I have travelled and worked almost all over India," he says.
The blog became wildly popular during the IPL for its hilarious posts on the IPL teams and players. The blogger claimed that he was a fringe player in the Kolkata Knight Riders team who would never get a chance to be in the playing XI.
His posts ridiculing the Knight Riders and the rest of the IPL teams made him immensely popular among netizens and drew sharp reactions from the KKR management with the team's official website calling the blog an example of "poison-pen writing".
