The batting phenom and former India captain Sachin Tendulkar is currently passing the time with his family as India is into its 4th version of lockdown due to Coronavirus pandemic. However, Sachin has found an interesting activity in his free time, which has impressed many.


The Mumbaikar is known for holding a cricket bat in his hand, but amid lockdown, he turned hairstylist and gave his son Arjun a decent haircut on Tuesday. Sachin teamed up with his daughter Sara to complete the task. The 47-year-old addressed Sara as ‘saloon assistant’ in order to help his son Arjun get a new haircut.

Sachin posted a video of the same on his official Instagram account. The ‘Bharat Ratna’ awardee tagged his son in the post and said that he will ‘always be handsome’ regardless of his father’s performance with the scissors.


“As a father, you need to do everything, be it playing games with your kids, gyming with them or for that matter, cutting their hair. However, the haircut turns out you’ll always be handsome @arjuntendulkar24. Special thanks to my salon assistant @saratendulkar,” Sachin Tendulkar wrote.

Earlier, the ‘Master Blaster’ was seen completing the ‘Keep it Up’ challenge thrown by former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh. The task was to juggle a cricket ball with the side of a bat, and Sachin responded by adding a twist. He turned blindfolded and threw the challenge back to the Chandigarh-born cricketer.


“Yuvi, you had given me a very easy option. So now I am giving you a difficult option. I am nominating you, my friend, come on, do it for me buddy,” said Tendulkar while juggling the ball in the video.

However, after nominating Yuvi for a difficult challenge, Sachin revealed that he could see through the blindfold.
