What is birthday boy Sachin Tendulkar up to?

When cricketer Sachin Tendulkar turns a year older, the entire country wants to celebrate. And it’s no surprise that the cricketer, who’s flying from Hyderabad to Jaipur today, had the cricketing fraternity and the South Indian film industry apparently celebrating it in a big way. But Sachin, who turned 38, wishes he was in Mumbai doing his regular birthday things with his family.

“I will miss being with mom on my birthday,” the icon apparently told a close friend. The friend also reveals that Sachin is a big Ganpati devotee, and always seeks His blessings at the Siddhivinayak on his birthday.

But whether he’s in Mumbai or not, his birthday has got his friends in a frenzy to gift him presents. Buzz has it thata few among them are hunting for his favourite Balenciaga perfume, a 10-year-old limited edition.

Another of his favourite activity is to relax and bond over films with his family. “I watch light-hearted Bollywood movies to relieve stress,”says Sachin. And what are his favourite films? “Sholay, Lagaan and Chak De India,” he promptly answers, adding that his favourite actors are “Madhuri Dixit and Amitabh Bachchan.”The cricketer, given his popularity, finds it hard to go to a theatre and enjoy a film, so he watches movies at home.

So has he ever got film offers? “Yes, but when I was offered, I could only think of cricket,” says Sachin, adding that he’s not averse to doing films in the future.
