On This Day – Sachin Tendulkar – Anjali Tendulkar’s Wedding Anniversary: Here’s How Sachin Made Anjali Meet His Parents

The couple celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary today.

Sachin Tendulkar and Anjali Tendulkar are one of the most loved celebrity couples in India. They complete each other, and show what it truly means to be in love!

The duo met for the first time at the Mumbai International Airport in 1990, and it was love at first sight for them. Sachin was returning from England after his first international tour, while Anjali was there at the same time to receive her parents. As Anjali later recalled, “I first met him at the Mumbai airport when he returned from his first tour of England in 1990, after scoring his maiden Test ton. In fact, when I first saw him at the airport, I didn’t even know who he was. It was purely by accident!”

They fell in love shortly after and tied the knot on this very date back in 1995. Today, on their 28th anniversary, we share a fun story about how Sachin made Anjali meet his parents.

How Sachin Tendulkar Made Anjali Meet His Parents

In a recent interview, Sachin Tendulkar said that he did not agree when Anjali asked him to talk to his parents. His reply was, “You’ll have to speak to both the families, both sides. You are taking charge. I will not go back home and I’ll speak to my parents, no chance.”

Back in 2015, Anjali revealed how hesitant and nervous the cricketer was when he had first invited his wife home. She recalled, “The first time Sachin wanted me to come to his house, he was a little hesitant.  So he came up with this plan that he will tell people at his home that I was a journalist. He said you pretend to be a journalist. I said, fine, whatever you say. I went to his house nicely dressed in salwar kameez.”
