How Sachin`s attempt to camouflage identity failed

Pune: The wig he put on was partially successful in camouflaging his identity but the spectacles he wore proved to be his undoing, exposing the real Sachin Tendulkar in a Mumbai cinema hall.

This "kissa" of an attempt to protect his privacy from the public glare, was narrated by the master batsman himself during an interview in London, telecast by a regional news channel on Monday.

Recalling the incident, Sachin said, "When I and my wife decided to go for a movie, it was suggested that I wear a wig and put on glasses to hide my identity to avoid crowding of fans. I did so but after being inside my spectacles fell off and it did not take long for those around me to recognise me. Finally I had to leave the place."

Touching upon the lighter side of life, Sachin, however, dismissed the talk that he at times moved around wearing a "burqua" for security reasons.

Asked whether he was considering any offer from Bollywood to act in a film, Sachin, smilingly said "No. At present the focus is only on cricket".
