Master Blaster Sachin Ready For Screen Ride?

This one's for cinematic history. Word has it that 'Master Blaster' Sachin Tendulkar is all set to don the cap of an actor in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' helmed by Rajesh Mapuskar.

Earlier, this year, Tendulkar tweeted his enthusiasm stating, "Vinod Chopra has an interesting script called 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari'. Just heard it. Sounds awesome."

The script will be penned by Chopra and Mapuskar, while Rajkumar Hirani will word the dialogues.

A cricket legend's Ferrari inspires a dream in a boy to play at the Lord's cricket ground. For the uninitiated, Tendulkar is the only cricketer in India to own a Ferrari.

Tendulkar's screen twist, however, brings to mind his quote when he shot for a documentary on the famed Siddhivinayak Temple, two years ago, stating, "Right now, the big screen for me is only cricket."

That's likely to be batted into the past now…
