Sachin shifts in his brand new home: Pix

People gather outside Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar's new house in Bandra area which he moved into Wednesday in Mumbai, India, Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011.

The five-storeyed bungalow is at 19-A, Perry Cross Road, a coveted address in the queen of the suburbs (Bandra), where Sachin, along with his family, entered in a traditional 'griha-pravesh' ceremony.

A battery of media-persons clicked away furiously as Sachin, clad in a simple striped T-shirt and trousers, took his first formal step into the bungalow with a glow of happiness on his face.

"I am really thrilled and happy today, especially for my mother and my family members," gushed Sachin on the occasion.
