Speaking in an episode of a talk show ‘In the Sportlight’, Tendulkar asked his fans to help him find out his first car.

“My first car was a Maruti 800. Unfortunately, it is not with me right now. I would love to have it back again with me. So, people listening to me, feel free to contact and get in touch,” the Master Blaster said.

Recalling his passion for four-wheelers, Sachin remarked: “There was a massive open drive-in movie hall near my house where people used to park their cars and watch the movie, sitting in it. So I, along with my brother, used to stand in our balcony for hours to watch those cars.”

In the same episode, the 47-year-old also spoke about his idol Sunil Gavaskar and how nervous he was when they first interacted in the dressing room in Mumbai.

“I was standing right in front of the dressing room (as a ball boy), so I could observe how players prepare themselves for the game. Later I got invited by my hero Gavaskar in the dressing room,” Tendulkar said.

“I still remember he was sitting on the last seat right in the corner and coincidently I also ended up sitting on the same spot when I started playing Ranji Trophy cricket. It was a coincidence to share the same spot as your hero but a magnificent coincidence,” he concluded.
