"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 was quoted as saying by Deccan Herald.
The Bollywood starlet also called him “India’s Prime Icon”.
"No matter if you are young, as young as Sachin was when he started, or even if you don't have people who are pushing you, you just have to believe in your talent. He sells dreams to the young people. He is an incredible icon to have. India's Prime Icon," she concluded.
Tendulkar is currently preparing for the home series against England who will be touring the country for four Test matches and two T20 Internationals.
