Bollywood bids heart-warming farewell to Sachin Tendulkar
Yesterday was a historic moment when Sachin Tendulkar walked into bat at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai for his final test match. He made 38 and today when he again walked into to play his match, there was a huge uproar upon his entrance. Fans pinned high hopes on Sachin and as usual he did not disappoint his well wishers and fans all over the globe. He closed his score book forever with a rocking 74 runs. Bollywood celebrities like Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Kiran Rao were present at the stadium to cheer for the living legend.
