Pune:

Sachin Tendulkar, in an interview to a local news channel in England, has revealed that he once wore a wig to protect his identity but a pair of fake spectacles gave him away, at a Mumbai cinema hall.


The incident to protect his privacy from the public glare, was narrated by the master batsman himself during an interview in London, telecast by a regional news channel on Monday. Recalling the incident, Sachin said, "When I and my wife decided to go for a movie, it was suggested that I wear a wig and put on glasses to hide my identity to avoid crowding of fans. I did so but after being inside my spectacles fell off and it did not take long for those around me to recognise me.Finally I had to leave the place."

Touching upon the lighter side of life, Sachin, however, dismissed the talk that he at times moved around wearing a "burqua" for security reasons. Asked whether he was considering any offer from Bollywood to act in a film, Sachin smilingly said, "No. At present the focus is only on cricket".
