On the eve of National Sports Day, former Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar held the bat once again and faced a few balls on the Mumbai streets. He was joined by Bollywood stars Varun Dhawan and Abhishek Bachchan and together they played a game of cricket.
Sachin also spent some time with the inmates of St. Anthony's Old Age Home in Mumbai. In a 45-second video, Sachin could be seen playing carrom and interacting and sharing jokes with the women inmates.
