When Sachin Tendulkar was embarrassed in front of Amitabh Bachchan after son Arjun wiped his hand’s on actor’s kurta
Previous captain of Indian cricket team Sachin Tendulkar becomes the birthday boy as today is his 48th birthday. He faced a massive embarrassment due to his son in front of Amitabh Bachchan and the birthday boy shared the incident once with media.
On the 75th birthday of Amitabh Bachchan in 2017, Sachin told the incident of his son Arjun to Mid day, “Arjun was only a year-and-a-half old then. We were shooting a commercial and in between shots, Arjun was sitting on our laps. Arjun was having an orange and after finishing it, he coolly wiped his hands on Mr Bachchan’s kurta. I didn’t know where to look. I was so embarrassed.”
The 21 year old Arjun started his career in cricket after being taken by Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League(IPL) 2021. Being legends on their respective fields, they respect each other all the time.
When Sachin was the first cricketer to make 50 test centuries, comparison started between him and Don Bradman. Then Amitabh Bachchan told that the comparison was offensive and wrote on his blog of 2010, “Why must there be a debate or even a discussion on whether Sachin is greater than Don Bradman or not? Sachin is greater, period! By bringing the topic up for debate, you are somewhere unsure whether he really is deserving of being great or not. And this is objectionable to me.”
During the Umang festival in 2013, Amitabh Bachchan told about Sachin on the stage, “I am grateful for the light he is giving me, by sharing the stage. Sachin is a great asset for our country and no matter what I say about him, it will not be enough. Sachin has made our country proud across the globe.”
