CHENNAI: After saying good bye to the cricket grounds, it seems that the legendary cricketer is finding unique ways to keep himself occupied. The cricket sensation, Sachin Tendulkar who used his hand to bat for 24 years for India on Thursday used it for tightening the nuts and bolts of a BMW engine at a car plant in Chennai.
The ‘God of Cricket’ assisted by the engineers at the German-headquarted BMW’s plant in Chennai tried his hands in assembling one of the cars of the luxury brand.
The car makers would probably roll out the BMW 5 series car with the engine and transmission fixed by Tendulkar as the ‘single car edition’ or ‘Sachin edition’.
Speaking on the same, the Master-Blaster said, “As a child I always dreamt of owning and driving a BMW car. And for long, I have been driving one. But the experience of making a BMW with my own hands was unique and unforgettable.”
At first, Tendulkar fixed the propeller shaft with the car engine after which he along with three other BMW employees pushed the table on which the engine was placed towards the car shell that was held by an assembly line conveyor.
After the engine was fitted in its place, the former Indian cricketer then tightened another bolt to fix the two litre engine with the car shell.
