Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was a great batsman. He has retired from cricketer for four years now. He has broken all records in world cricket during his illustrated career. And it is unlikely that his records would be broken in near future.
Now, he is into singing to add a new record to his name. The Little Master made his singing debut with Sonu Nigam. It has come as a surprise for his fans as Sachin has never expressed his desire in singing. The song has been promoted as ‘Sachin song’.
The lyrics of the ‘Nacho Nacho Nacho Sare Cricket Waali Beat Pe’ are quirky and they go something like this: “Gend aayi, bala ghuma, mara chaka, Sachin, Sachin… nacho nacho sab cricket wali beat pe.”
“Although I am fond of music I never thought I will sing. They all ganged up and finally got me to sing. Sonu made me comfortable in the studio and told me to take the first strike. I have thanked all the cricketers with whom I have played in the six World Cups,” said Tendulkar.
Talking about the song, Sonu said here: “I am glad to be part of Sachin’s new innings. The song that he has sung with me is called ‘Cricket Wali Beat’. I was very surprised to see the way he was pitching right. That’s why I believe that when God blesses someone with genius, it spills in other faculties too.”
Sonu can now vouch for Tendulkar’s singing skill.
“He is a very good singer. We did not use pitch corrector on his voice as he was singing in the right sur (tone) and (despite being) the shy person that he is, he got extremely comfortable the moment I kind of increased the masti (fun) quotient while we were shooting the video. It was wonderful and I am very happy that people are loving the song,” the singer said.
About having Sachin on the show’s stage, Sonu said: “‘Indian Idol’ is my family, my house, my domain and Sachin coming in and releasing the song for its world TV premiere, is a matter of pride for all of us.”
“Sachin Tendulkar is a phenomenon not just for India, but for the world, especially for the world of cricket. When he is given the title of god, it’s not just by chance. His whole demeanour, whole career, entire reputation and the spotless career that he has had, is the reason why he is called the God of cricket,” Sonu added.
