Recently, Tendulkar took some time out of a shooting stint to play cricket with the crew on National Sports Day. The 46-year-old was joined by Bollywood stars, Varun Dhawan and Abhishek Bachchan.
Sachin Tendulkar announced retirement from all formats back in 2013. He is the only batsman in the history of cricket who has 100 international centuries to his name. The former batsman has scored 15,921 runs in 200 Test matches and 18,426 runs in 463 One-day Internationals.
In July, Tendulkar was inducted into the International Cricket Council (ICC) Hall of Fame along with former South Africa fast bowler Allan Donald and two-time World Cup-winning Australian woman cricketer Cathryn Fitzpatrick.
