Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s daughter Sara may soon make a foray into Bollywood.
Already into modelling, the 24-year-old University College of London graduate with over 1.8 million followers on Instagram is keen on making a career in Bollywood. This is according to leading entertainment news portal ‘Bollywood Life’.
“Sara might make her Bollywood debut soon. She has been very much interested in acting and she has even taken a few acting lessons as she does some brand endorsements,” an unnamed source was quoted as saying by the portal.
However, her brother Arjun is a cricketer, having followed in the footsteps of their father to take the legacy ahead.
Sachin retired in October 2013 after playing his 200th Test match against West Indies at Wankhede Stadium in his hometown of Mumbai. It was a 24-year-long stint since his Test debut in November 1989 against Pakistan in Karachi at the age of 16.
The 49-year-old former Indian batsman, who captained India twice during his career, is the highest scorer of all time in international cricket, having more than 30,000 runs in his kitty.
Sachin is also the only cricketer in the world to play 200 Tests and score as many as 100 international hundreds. He has amassed 18,426 runs from 463 ODIs at an average of 44.83 and 15,921 runs from 200 Tests.
He was also conferred India’s highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna, in 2014 by then President Pranab Mukherjee. In 2010, Time magazine included Sachin in its annual Time 100 list as one of the ‘Most Influential People in the World.
Since his retirement, ‘The God of Cricket’ has garnered fans in the startup community also — playing the role of an ideal civilian mentor to the young minds of India.
