Debkumar has once again made it to the news with his controversial statements. He left everyone puzzled when he said that lightning struck him and asked him to marry Sara. For the matter of fact, he has never seen Sachin’s daughter in person. He has been to Mumbai only once in his life, for handicraft-related work. He said, “Mai Sara se shaadi karna chahta hu (I want to marry Sara)”. So, how did he fall in love? “Watching her on TV.”
As per some of the media reports, the arrested man said, “I looked up in the sky and asked, ‘Is Sara Tendulkar my wife?’, and lightning struck to confirm it. I said it on the phone when I called Tendulkar’s office.” He managed Sara’s number from one of his nephews, who surfed the net to get it done. Debkumar confirmed that he called the number 20-25 times.
Debkumar also revealed that he has a tattoo on his wrist which reads ‘Deb and Sara’, he said, “I used to say, in broken Hindi, ‘Sara Tendulkar is my life and I want to marry her’. Ships, trains stop at my sight. Even I am the best in the world.”
The most shocking part is, he got the tattoo done in 2013 and claims he loves Sara since 2011. The girl was only 13 back then. He left everyone bewildered when he said that he has no regret for his decisions.
