There is a lot of discussion about the batting and records of Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the ‘God’ of cricket, but today we are going to tell you about the love story of ‘Little Master’, which very few people will know about. One reason for this is that Sachin discusses his personal life very less in public.
Met at Mumbai International Airport
Sachin and Anjali had their first meeting at Mumbai International Airport and at the first sight the two fell in love with each other. The year was 1990 and while Sachin was returning from his first international cricket tour, Anjali went to receive her mother at the airport. Anjali was the daughter of famous industrialist Ashok Mehta.
Anjali’s friend told her about Sachin and Anjali started shouting his name. In the crowd of fans, Sachin’s gaze went to Anjali. On seeing Anjali, he blushed and went away smiling and at the same time, Anjali forgot everything after seeing Sachin.
A few days later, the two met again at the home of a common friend and from here the love story of both started moving forward. By the time Anjali met Sachin, she became a doctor. Her cricket information was very limited but after meeting Sachin, she found cricket very interesting.
Sachin became a star player from the beginning of his career, that is why the two never met at any public place because of the fear of people, as they will recognize Sachin.
Sachin’s movie incident
In an interview to a magazine, Anjali recalled an old anecdote that both of them had planned to watch the film ‘Roja’ with friends. Sachin put on fake beard and glasses so that no one will recognize him. According to Anjali, Sachin took an entry in the hall after the film started, so that people would not notice him. But all this planning did not worked because his glasses fell from his face at the interval and people recognized him, after which he had to leave the film in the middle.
Engagement in New Zealand
Anjali told at the launch of Sachin’s biography ‘playing it my way’ that she had crossed 46-acre-long path in the dark to meet Sachin on a New Zealand tour. Both decided to get engaged in New Zealand itself.
Sachin and Anjali got married on 24 May 1995.
At the time of marriage, Sachin was 22 years old and Anjali was 28. On 12 October 1997, Sachin and Anjali had a daughter named ‘Sara’ and on 24 September 1999, they had a son ‘Arjun’. After the birth of the children, Anjali left her profession for their better upbringing. Anjali said that it was her own decision and she has no regrets. At the same time, Sachin has also always considered Anjali as his greatest strength.
