All set to hit another sixer, Sachin Tendulkar has been quite busy these days. Exercising the same dedication and single-minded approach he did to his game all through his career, the master blaster is applying the same to now promoting his upcoming film, and well, let’s just say some tweeple haven’t taken to it all too well. Over the past couple of months, the 44-year-old has left no stone unturned and no platform untouched when it came to talking about Sachin: A Billion Dreams, as a run-up to his biopic, before it lights up the silver screen.
The legendary cricketer earlier bowled listeners with his singing debut along with Sonu Nigam and his admirers were floored. Thereafter, he met the Prime Minister in the Capital along with his wife Anjali Tendulkar. No sooner had the pictures of their handshake circulated on social media, they were turned into hilarious memes. But, the trolls never get exhausted. Tweeple are at it again, and this time they’ve targeted Tendulkar’s promotional events before the movie spells splendour at the box office.
As the movie is ready for release, Twitter is buzzing with funny jokes and witty one-liners. Here are some of the tweets that will leave you in splits.
