The ‘God of cricket’ Sachin Tendulkar is back in a different avatar.
He made a singing debut with Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam in a song titled ‘Cricket waali beat’.
The song had its world TV premiere on the grand finale of singing TV reality show “Indian Idol 9” on April 2.
“He is a very good singer. We did not use pitch corrector on his voice as he was singing in the right sur (tone) and (despite being) the shy person that he is, he got extremely comfortable the moment I kind of increased the masti (fun) quotient while we were shooting the video. It was wonderful and I am very happy that people are loving the song,” Nigam said.
“Sachin Tendulkar is a phenomenon not just for India, but for the world, especially for the world of cricket. When he is given the title of god, it’s not just by chance. His whole demeanour, whole career, entire reputation and the spotless career that he has had, is the reason why he is called the God of cricket,” he further added.
We all know that Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from all forms of cricket in November 2013. But he continued to remain in lot of our hearts as the ‘god of cricket’.
Through this song Sachin will not only be heard crooning vocals but will also be heard expressing gratitude to the country’s greatest cricketing stars as he mentions every single player he played his 6 World Cups with.
