While preparations for the release of Thackeray, the most-awaited film of 2019 are on in full swing, and the excitement gains momentum, not only among the makers, but also among the masses and the celebrities alike, ace Cricketer Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar shares his thoughts on the towering personality, in a video byte, ahead of the Balasaheb Thackeray biopic, Thackeray release on 25th January, 2019. The trailer releases much ahead of its scheduled date due to the mass anticipation and adulation rising.
“When we used to practice Cricket at Shivaji Park, we would see the preparations of Balasaheb’s assembly and, also how excited people would be to hear his speeches. And also how excited people would be to hear his speeches!
Whenever I met him, and was leaving for a Cricket tournament, he would always tell me to glorify the country’s name and make India proud,” shares an emotional Tendulkar.
It was Balasaheb, who while writing for the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana, urged the then-ruling Congress Party to confer the highest civilian honour upon the Master Blaster, “If you love Sachin so much, then why don’t you give him the Bharat Ratna?” asked he.
Sachin Tendulkar had always shared a special bond with the Late Shiv Sena Supremo, both being passionate fans of Cricket, besides being the Pride of Maharashtra!
A fitting tribute indeed from one master to the master of a million hearts!
