ICC Hall of Fame Sachin Tendulkar teamed up with Bollywood celebs to celebrate the launch of Fit India campaign by doing what he does the best, playing cricket.
Master Blaster Sachin played cricket with celebrities like Varun Dhawan and Abhishek Bachchan along with other crew members at Mumbai's famous Mehboob studio on the occasion of National Sports Day.
Sachin visited the studio for an advertisement shoot when he was joined by Varun and junior Bachchan, who were also present for filming a project.
An energetic Sachin Tendulkar can be heard tutoring bowlers on how and where to bowl. The batting legend is also seen attempting a few shots as Indian actor Varun Dhawan bowls. Both Varun Dhawan and Abhishek Bachchan can be seen hugging Sachin Tendulkar at the end of the match.
Taking to Twitter, Sachin shared his experience of mixing "work with play" and said, "Had a lot of fun playing cricket with the crew during a shoot & was pleasantly surprised with Varun Dhawan dropping by along with Abhishek Bachchan who joined us for some time. #SportPlayingNation #FitIndiaMovement."

Varun Dhawan while showing his support for the campaign informed about the importance of playing a sport to "distress."
"I think playing sports is a distressing activity in general for people nowadays. They get stressed due to the office pressure and playing can help," said the actor in the discussion he had with Sachin Tendulkar.
Speaking at Indira Gandhi Stadium in Delhi, Prime Minister urged all to make it a mass movement similar to that of Swaach Bharat Mission.
