New Delhi: God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar has retired from the game for quite some time now. But he has been doing a number of off-field activities; with the latest one being unique!
The cricketer tried himself into singing career. He could not have found a better way to do it, as he teamed up with India’s star singer Sonu Nigam for a cricket mash-up song named ‘Cricket Wali Beat’.
Everyone was waiting impatiently to hear Sachin’s track as it was hard to imagine the cricketer singing. His track, along with Sonu, was released during the Indian Idol season 9 grand finale.
“Although I am fond of music I never thought I will sing. They all ganged up and finally got me to sing. Sonu made me comfortable in the studio and told me to take the first strike. I have thanked all the cricketers with whom I have played in the six World Cups. I have thanked all the cricketers with whom I have played in the six World Cups. The love for music was always there. Music helped me control my emotions before going to bat, it helped me calm down after the innings.” Tendulkar said.
Earlier, singer Sonu Nigam said he is a very good singer. The song had its world TV premiere on the grand finale of singing TV reality show “Indian Idol 9″ on Sunday night on Sony Entertainment Television.
