Satire: Sachin Tendulkar's new hairstyle causes much grief to his fan!

Please note: This is a humorous piece – pure fiction.
 

Balbir Patel, a part time theater actor and mimicry artist who looks like Sachin Tendulkar, is now in a fix. Balbir had spent around Rs 3 lakh on hair transplant and hair curling treatment to get a hairstyle that looked very similar to Tendulkar’s earlier short and curly hair.

 

However, to his horror – which was shared by millions of Tendulkar fans – he discovered that Tendulkar has got a new hairstyle – a cross between hairstyle of Akshay Kumar in the movie Action Replay and hairstyle of Ramesh-Suresh duo in the 5 Star chocolate TV commercial.

 

Balbir is now worried about getting a new haircut that could make him a Tendulkar lookalike again. Short on finances, the duplicate Tendulkar has now written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to provide him with a wig.

 

“I can’t afford to spend another Rs five to six lakhs again to become a duplicate Tendulkar,” a crest-fallen Balbir said. “I’m just a small actor and earn small money by appearing in ads and events as duplicate Tendulkar.”

 

Talking exclusively to Faking News, Balbir expressed anger and frustration over the fact that neither Tendulkar nor the BCCI warned him about the hairstyle change, which was now threatening to ruin his professional life.

 

“How will Tendulkar feel if he was suddenly told that he has to bat left-handed from now on?” Balbir argued, “I can’t have another transplant as this would destroy my scalp and my artificial hair can’t be straightened.”

 

The duplicate Tendulkar has demanded that either Tendulkar gets his old hairstyle back or he’s provided with a wig that will help him become a Tendulkar-lookalike once again.

 

“I think Tendulkar should get his old hairstyle back,” Mahip, a Tendulkar fan, opined, “Forget Balbir, what will happen to those was statues at Madame Tussauds?”

 

A quick survey by Faking News revealed that an overwhelming number of Tendulkar fans and most cricket fans favored Tendulkar getting his old hairstyle back. Though a few thought that the Tendulkar should continue with his new hairstyle as it had helped him get his 100th international century and a nomination to the Parliament.
