Sachin Tendulkar and Amitabh Bachchan both enjoy the same legendary status in their respective fields. Both have inspired many people with their remarkable journey and what they have achieved in their respective careers.
While Tendulkar retired from the international cricket in 2013, Amitabh Bachchan is still going strong at 76 years of age — proving that age is just a number.
Sachin Tendulkar is the only player on the planet with 100 international centuries to his name. He also holds the world record of scoring maximum number of runs in international cricket. He is the only player who has played 200 matches in game’s most-testing format — Test cricket.
Amitabh Bachchan, on the other hand, has won four National Awards for his performances in films like Agneepath (1990), Black (2005), Paa (2009) and Piku (2015).
Sachin Tendulkar is the youngest-ever recipient of Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, while the 76-year-old star received country’s second-highest civilian award Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
Big B’s list of accolades also includes Padma Shri (1984) and Padma Bhushan (2001) and several Filmfare awards.
