Amitabh Bachchan is still without a doubt Bollywood’s biggest megastar. In a career spanning over 5 decades, with every film, he was moulded and reinvented himself according to the times and stayed on top. Suffice to say, everything he does, dons and says becomes a piece of headlining news and gets etched in our memories. Now, as Former Indian cricket team captain Sachin Tendulkar celebrates his 48th birthday, we are reminded of the time Big B defended him. This was when Sachin became the first cricketer to score 50 Test centuries. At that time, he was compared with Don Bradman, an Australian international cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. Amitabh had then come to Sachin’s rescue amid the debate and called the comparison ‘objectionable’. Taking to his blogpost, Big B had then written, ‘Why must there be a debate or even a discussion on whether Sachin is greater than Don Bradman or not? Sachin is greater, period! By bringing the topic up for debate, you are somewhere unsure whether he really is deserving of being great or not. And this is objectionable to me.’ Sachin is often seen catching up with the megastar at his home over get-togethers and parties. The two, who are legends in their own fields share a good bond. That reminds us, Did you know that Sachin’s son Arjun had once caused him embarrassment in front of the actor? The cricketer even shared the incident in one of his interviews. On Amitabh Bachchan’s 75th birthday in 2017, Sachin had told a daily, ‘Arjun was only a year-and-a-half old then. We were shooting a commercial and in between shots, Arjun was sitting on our laps. Arjun was having an orange and after finishing it, he coolly wiped his hands on Mr Bachchan’s kurta. I didn’t know where to look. I was so embarrassed.’ Well, ETimes wishes you a very happy birthday, Sachin.
