Facing the camera for his soon-to-be-released biopic has been more challenging than standing up to the fastest bowlers in the world and scoring runs, said cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar.
“For so many years, I did whatever I wanted to do and the camera captured that. Suddenly I was asked to do particular things and then the camera captured that, so it was a bit different for me. Believe me, the first option was better,” said Tendulkar at a function, where he was announced as the face of the inaugural IDBI Federal Life Insurance Mumbai Half Marathon, scheduled to be held on August 21.
Tendulkar, 42, is making his acting debut with the biopic, ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’, which has been directed by award-winning British director James Erskine.
