Why are Sachin Tendulkar and Canadian singer Justin Bieber jostling together in this picture? Basically, when did cricket heartthrob Tendulkar meet singing sensation Bieber, and how did we not know about it?
One glance at this picture that has gone viral, and you will probably think these very questions. Rest easy, you’re not the only one either.
As much as we acknowledge the popularity of the kid who Baby, baby, baby-ed himself to teen popularity, he is NOT the one wishing the cricketing legend on his birthday, and that too in person. It so happens that the young lad in question is none other than Tendulkar’s son Arjun! Though, given that he’s looking uncannily like Bieber in this picture, any kind of confusion can surely be forgiven.
On September 24, Facebook page Cricket of Circle India shared a picture of Arjun, with his father, wishing him a happy 17th birthday and it was hard to make out that the youngster was not Bieber. “Before reading that caption i was like why is justin Bieber holding sachin tendulakar like that,” wrote a user. “Is it only me who before seeing d full pic n caption, thought that Arjun Tendulkar is JUSTIN BIEBER? I thought why is sachin clicking pics with #JB?” wrote another.
The picture has taken the Internet by storm and many took to social media to share pictures of Arjun looking similar to Bieber.
The last time Arjun was in news was when the controversy of his selection in the West Zone’s U-16 cricket team which was touted as “influence of his father” as Pranav Dhanawade was dropped.
