Sachin Tendulkar’s Bollywood debut

Yes, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar will soon be seen in a Hindi movie.
The movie is titled ‘Vighnahartha Shree Sidhivinayak’, which, as the
title suggests, will be a devotional film with Lord Vinayaka as the central
character. Sachin will be playing himself in either a short talkie portion
or a song of the movie. His portion is planned to be shot after the Indian
team returns from its tour of Sri Lanka in August. Sachin, who has always been
known to be a devotee of Lord Vinayaka will not charge any fee for acting in the

Sachin’s Bollywood debut follows the news of Test captain Anil Kumble playing
himself in a Hindi movie which will have Mandira Bedi doing a key role.
