Sachin-Anjali: The eternal love story


sachin mainSachin Tendulkar has always been rather shy in discussing about his personal life in media. This might be the reason why a lot of us are unaware of his romantic love story with wife, Anjali.

The love story of Sachin and Anjali Tendulkar is surely inspiring to a lot of young couples. They set an example of a strong and committed marriage.

From love at first sight to supporting each other through thick and thin, their relationship is quite interesting.

So why not have a look at their personal life and how it all started:

When Sachin Tendulkar and Anjali first met, Anjali was practicing medicine while Sachin had just begun his cricketing career. Anjali being a dedicated student, was much involved in studies and was very less interested in cricket. Her knowledge about sports, and particularly cricket, was faint. Later when they started dating, Anjali made all efforts to brush up her knowledge about the sport.

While giving an interview to a local magazine, Anjali recalls an incident where the two of them had gone to see the movie Roza along with a few common friends. Sachin went in disguise sporting a beard and specs so no one could recognize him but in the interval his specs fell and in no time the ace cricketer was surrounded by his fans and due to this they all had to leave the movie halfway.


Also, at the launch of Sachin’s autobiography, Playing It My Way, Anjali shared a few interesting secrets of their courtship days. And, here they are:

. She told that she used to write letters to Sachin just to save on international telephone bills. And, that is the way the two communicated.

. She also mentioned that she used to walk across 46 acres in darkness and brave goons to call Sachin in New Zealand.

. When the two planned to get engaged, Sachin was in New Zealand. So, he asked Anjali to break the news to his family.

. Anjali also revealed that she went to Sachin’s house for the first time disguised as a journalist.

sachin 7Explaining how strong is their bond, Anjali Tendulkar said in one of her interviews:

“I’ve not known any other person in my life except Sachin. I understand him so well. So whether I am his girlfriend or his wife, it’s the same thing, just an extension of that bond.”

Also, talking about what she means to him, Sachin Tendulkar said in an interview:

“Anjali actually taught me to thank for what the God has given me and for what the God has not given me.”

sachin 4Anjali Tendulkar left her career of being a successful pediatrician to live a happy married life with her husband. She says that she has no regrets whatsoever of leaving her profession as taking care of her husband and children gives her the greatest joy.

She even said this in one of her interviews:

“I could not be married to Sachin and also have a full-time career. It wasn’t possible because he depends on me for almost everything. It was my decision. With Sachin not around and me with two kids at home, it wouldn’t have been possible. I took a decision and I have never, ever regretted it.”

sachin 6Whenever Sachin Tendulkar used to be on field, everything else in the world ceased to exist for Anjali.

She even mentioned about it in an interview as she said:

“I don’t eat. I don’t answer phones. I don’t drink. I don’t even move. I don’t reply to any sms until he’s out.”

Sachin has always recognised the sacrifices that Anjali has made for him and his career.

sachin3In his recently released autobiography, Playing It My Way, Sachin has confessed that it was Anjali who helped him deal with and get through the debacles that he faced as the captain of the Indian cricket team. Sachin has written, “I confided in Anjali that I feared there was nothing more that I could do to stem the tide of defeats.” He further added, “Anjali, as usual, managed to put things in perspective and assured me that things would surely get better in the months to come.”

sachin 5Anjali, daughter of the well-known industrialist, Ashok Mehta, got married to Sachin Tendulkar on May 24, 1995, after a five-year long period of dating each other. They have been happily married to each other for the last 19 years. Anjali Tendulkar is 6 years older than Sachin Tendulkar. But, the couple maintains that this age gap has never been a matter of concern in their relationship and instead, has made them more committed and understanding towards each other.

The beautiful love story Sachin and Anjali still continues to inspire a million people.
