Thank you for your kind words, Chiranjeevi Garu. Hoping all is well at your end.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) April 27, 2020
After Chiranjeevi wished Sachin Tendulkar for his birthday, the renowned cricketer shared the above message on Twitter. Sachin Tendulkar thanked Chiranjeevi for his well-wishes and then asked about his well-being during the lockdown. The actor soon responded to the legendary cricketer with a witty yet heartfelt post.
Chiranjeevi first reassured Sachin Tendulkar that everything was fine with him. The Telugu superstar then told Sachin Tendulkar that he was teaching people that 'Defence is the Best Offence' against coronavirus. For those unaware, 'Defence is the Best Offence' is a quote that is often associated with Sachin Tendulkar's stellar playstyle during a cricket game.
On the work front, Chiranjeevi last featured on the big screen in the epic action thriller film, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The film was directed by Surender Reddy and was released on October 2, 2019. While the film had a star cast, it still failed to impress at the Box office and only made around Rs 246.60 Crores for a budget of around Rs 270 Crores.
