According to an Indian news website, the statement was made by the former batsman during the release of the teaser of his upcoming biopic “Sachin The Film”.
Tendulkar said that acting was more a challenging job for him rather than playing cricket, which comes to him naturally.
The former Indian batsman said that he did whatever he wanted to do and camera captured that but he was asked to do particular things and then camera captured that as well.
“That was a bit difficult thing for me. But believe me the first option was a better option. Acting is not something which I dreamt of. Without any doubt it is more challenging for me than playing cricket, I enjoyed that (cricket) more,” he said.
The biopic is being directed by award-winner James Erskine and is being made by Mumbai-based production company 200 Not Out.
