Sachin Tendulkar may soon be seen dancing around trees instead of swinging his bat on the field. Rumours are rife that the Little Master, who recently completed his 100th ODI century, is all set to make his big screen debut in filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Ferrari Ki Sawari. And, author Shobhaa De’s tweet suggests it may be more than just a special appearance.
“There’s a distinct impression that Sachint is preparing for a new innings. In Bollywood. Fans will be over the moon if that happens,” De tweeted on Friday. When we asked her about it, she said, “I’ve just said that it’s an impression. It’s a remark made by Vidhu Vinod Chopra that he is trying to ask him to do a cameo, but it may turn out to be nothing more than that. Sachin might even look at it from a serious point of view and if that happens, it’ll be great.” Sachin’s fans are ecstatic. Director Anees Bazmee says, “I’d love to see him in movies ... I’m sure he’ll do good.” Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, however, says, “Let us be masters of our own field... Can you imagine Salman Khan hitting a century?” Cricketers who tried their hand at acting and failed include Sunil Gavaskar and Ajay Jadeja.
