At the launch of the event, Tendulkar said that singing the national anthem at the Wankhede Stadium before the 2011 World Cup final was the “proudest feeling” ever.

“I can never forget that experience, the entire stadium singing ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and it still reverberates in my ears. It’s the proudest feeling I have ever had in my life,” Tendulkar told The Hindu.

The video also features  – tennis player Mahesh Bhupati, hockey legend Dhanraj Pillay, football player Baichung Bhutia, shooter Gagan Narang, and wrestler Sushil Kumar.
