Sachin Tendulkar, the batting legend recently met popular South Indian actor Rajnikanth at a ceremony and has said that he was amazed by his humility. Tendulkar recently retired from international cricket after a 24 year long career and is known for his exemplary demeanour.
Speaking at a ceremony organised by NDTV, Tendulkar said, “It was very kind of him as he came to meet me. I was absolutely floored by his humility and glad that I met him. He is someone I really admire.”
Tendulkar and Rajnikanth discussed cricket as well. “I was really happy to know that he follows cricket. We discussed about various matches especially India-Pakistan matches,” Tendulkar said.
Tendulkar also said that the feeling that he has retired hasn’t sunk in yet. “I am enjoying life after cricket and often play cricket with Arjun and his friends. Me and my son also watch cricket whenever there’s a live match as I can’t keep myself away from the game. I am also spending a lot of time with my family,” he said.
