Apart from being ‘Badshahs’ of their respective fields, and living in Bandra, Mumbai, Sachin Tendulkar and Shah Rukh Khan have been good friends over the years. The legendary cricketer, however, jokingly trolled the superstar while congratulating him for completing 27 years in the film industry. The highest run-scorer of the sport used smart wordplay of the actor’s films names, ‘Baazigar’, ‘Chak De! India’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ to advise him to use a helmet while riding a motorcycle, after his video for his latest milestone surfaced.
On Saturday, Sachin tweeted, “Dear Baazigar, don't 'Chuck' De helmet. Wear one when on a bike Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Congratulations on completing 27 years! See you soon, my friend.”
His response was to SRK’s video where he is seen recreating his bike-riding scene from his debut film 'Deewana', as the music of the song ‘Koi Na Koi Chahiye’ plays in the background. The actor had posted the video to thank his fans for the love.
Previously, the two stars’ selfie during the pre-wedding celebrations of Aakash Ambani-Shloka Mehta had also gone viral. Even then, the Master Blaster had a reference to this film title 'Jab Harry Met Sejal'. The 46-year-old had then captioned, "Jab SRK met SRT."
Sachin had previously enjoyed a similar banter with another superstar and friend, Aamir Khan for his song ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ from ‘Ghulam’.
