Though Sachin Tendulkar retired from worldwide cricket in 2013, the previous India captain continues to rule the hearts of cricket followers throughout the globe. The legendary batsman is greeted with the long-lasting 'Sachin! Sachin!' chant each time the general public will get a glimpse of their 'Grasp- Blaster', as he's fondly referred to as. Throughout his enjoying days, the mantra was heard at each stadium every time Tendulkar walked out to bat. On Tuesday, the 44-year-old revealed that it was his mom who truly began the mantra.

"I by no means thought 'Sachin Sachin' (chant) would proceed past my enjoying days. It has now gone to the theatres. So I really feel pleased," the right-handed batsman stated.

Tendulkar stated this after a track from a film "Sachin: A Billion Dreams", based mostly on his life, was launched in presence of music composer A.R. Rahman.

"My mom began it truly. I used to go play downstairs and to name me again house, mom would name 'Sachin Sachin'," Tendulkar stated when requested when he had first heard the mantra.

There's an iconic image of a younger Tendulkar holding a bat.

Requested about it, Tendulkar stated, "This was truly taken at house once I was enjoying with my brother. This was within the balcony. I used to be solely 4 or 5 then. My positions weren't good. What I loved was, hitting the ball. Be it a cricket bat or a tennis racket. My brother would chuck tennis ball, few I used to hit from cricket bat, few from rackets."
