MUMBAI: Sachin Tendulkar seems to have so much more free time on his hands, now that he’s retired from one-day cricket. Perhaps this is why the ‘Master Blaster’ spared some time, and graced the music launch of Asha Bhonsle’s film ‘Mai at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai.

The ace cricketer was seen at the music launch of the film, and was seen interacting with the media persons and obliging them with a great photo opportunity by posing alongside the veteran singer-turned-actress Ashaji. The official music was launched on stage, with Sachin and Asha sharing a light moment just before unveiling the album.

For the music launch, Sachin chose a simple blue striped shirt and trousers, sticking to his basic dressing and maintaining his casual style statement. In contrast, Asha Bhonsle wore a heavily embroidered white and gold sari, and looked very regal indeed. After all, she’s practically singing royalty.

Sachin and Asha showed off their Marathi manoos connection here at the event, and were seen conversing in the language. ‘Mai’ marks the acting debut of the legendary playback singer Asha Bhonsle.

Sachin’s been all over Mumbai, celebrating his time off from the game which made him a superstar. Recently, he surprised a bemused Kailash Kher at his concert, by jumping onto stage to accompany the singer extraordinaire. The event, which took place at Khar gymkhana, was doubly special for Kailash since he’s been working on writing a song on Sachin in honour of his hundredth century.
