In a recent interview, Sachin Tendulkar revealed that who has started the “Sachin Sachin”. The answer might surprise you all. The legendary batsman said it was not any fan who started this but his mother was the one who started the famous chant.
“Do you know who started ‘Sachin…Sachin’? My mother. When I was 5 or so and I was playing downstairs with my friends in front of our building, after 7.30 or so when mother wanted me home and I did not want to leave the playground. That’s when she used to stand in the balcony and go like.. Sachin…Sachin..you need to come now,” Sachin Tendulkar told India Today.
“During my playing days, I was superstitious and I did not want to count my runs. The moment you start counting the runs they don’t come to you. Same thing with ‘Sachin…Sachin’. Don’t count just soak in whatever it is. The atmosphere was unbelievable. That is what I enjoy. It is a blessing. However much I thank people, it is never enough,” he added.
