New Delhi. Former star batsman of Team India, Sachin Tendulkar, also remains in the news due to his calm nature. Apart from being a cricketer, he is also the brand ambassador of many companies. Sachin had told in an interview that once a company was giving him a blank cheque. Despite this, he refused to take this cheque. As soon as he refused to take the cheque, he showed the mirror to legends like Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Virender Sehwag.

In fact, while speaking at a program, Sachin Tendulkar had said, “I started playing cricket while studying in school. Since then I started getting many promotional offers. Many tobacco companies asked me to promote them, but I never did so. Because I had promised my father that I would never advertise tobacco products.”

Sachin had said that I had received offers from many tobacco companies. But I never accepted them. They used to give me blank cheques also, but I never accepted them. My father had said that you are a role model, the world will follow whatever you do. That is why I have never promoted any tobacco product till date.

Let us tell you that Sachin never did this but legends like Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Virender Sehwag have endorsed tobacco products. All these three cricketers have endorsed tobacco products. All these players have performed brilliantly on the cricket field. Kapil Dev made India win the World Cup for the first time. Apart from Kapil Dev, Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag have scored more than 10000 runs in international cricket. Kapil Dev has 9031 runs to his name.
