The legendary Indian cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar tweeted his greetings to his actor friend Aamir Khan on his birthday with a special twist. Referring to Aamir’s upcoming movie ‘Laal Singh Chadha’, Sachin’s tweet read: “Happy birthday to my dear friend Aamir Singh Chaddha.” The legendary batsman also tweeted a photo with the iconic actor, who is celebrating his 55th birthday on Saturday.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is the Hindi remake of the famous Tom Hanks flick, “Forrest Gump”. The movie, which is expected to release around Christmas, stars Kareena Kapoor along with Aamir Khan. The master batsman, who was recently awarded the Laureus Sporting Moment of the last two decades, also shared a photo with the 3 Idiots star, who turned 55 on Saturday.

The two giants of their respective fields have been known to share a good bond and often engage with each other on social media. This is not Tendulkar’s first filmy wish for the actor. The two shared a funny exchange on Aamir’s last birthday as well, with Sachin quoting Aamir’s famous song ‘Aati Kya Khandala’.
India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane also wished Aamir Khan on his special day. His tweet read: “A great actor and even better human being. Wish you a very happy birthday @aamir_khan. Stay blessed!”

Tendulkar recently made a cricketing comeback of sorts when he took the field to play for India Legends in the Road Safety World Series, which could not be completed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The tournament also boasted of other legends like Brian Lara, Virender Sehwag, Jonty Rhodes and Muttiah Muralitharan.
The India Legends team, under the leadership of Sachin Tendulkar, won their first two matches, before the tournament was indefinitely postponed.
