Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra sang praises for cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who is in line to bag the title of India’s Prime Icon. She called him the country’s Kohinoor.

“I think Sachin Tendulkar is our greatest Kohinoor. He is not just a sports personality anymore; he is an icon that every young person aspires to be because he proves that dreams can come true no matter where you are from and no matter what you do as long as you believe in yourself and have a passion towards your job,”

Priyanka said. “No matter if you are young or even if you don’t have people pushing you, you just have to believe in your talent. He sells dreams to the young people. He is an incredible icon to have,” she added.
