Mohanlal praises Tendulkar, says he sets a good example
Thiruvananthapuram: Malayalam superstar Mohanlal is impressed with Sachin Tendulkar's speech at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai last week and says the legend has set an example for generations to come.
Mohanlal, who took to his blog to express his views on the speech and posted a write up titled "An enlightening Swan song at Wankhede", missed the speech on Nov 16 due to work commitments.
"I read it the next day and it came to light that just like the beginning, the ending is also very important," wrote Mohanlal, known for memorable films like "Vanaprastham", "Bharatham", "Manichithra Thaazhu", "Chithram" and "Kireetam".
"What he spoke is just not limited to one profession, as there is a lot to learn for professionals from diverse sectors," he wrote.
Soon after Tendulkar finished playing his last match, the government announced the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian honour of the country, for the 40-year-old.
Tendulkar dedicated it to all the mothers in India - and especially his own mother Rajni Tendulkar.
Mohanlal says that those who dump their parents should learn a lesson from Tendulkar and realise that there's no success without a mother's blessing.
"His speech should now be taught in schools as this will be a morale booster for the children," wrote the superstar.
