Dhanush will croon for Tendulkar for a Boost commercial.
“It's a great honour to sing for a legend like Sachin Tendulkar. I am happy that I have been chosen to do this. He is the pride of our nation. When I was offered to do the song I didn't think twice and just knew that I had to do it. I have really worked hard on the song and I hope people enjoy it,” Dhanush is quoted as saying in an agency report.
The video, shot at various locations in Hyderabad, is expected to go on air soon.
Dhanush also said he hasn't met Sachin to tell him about the song and doubts if he knows him. “No I haven't met Sachin... I don't think he knows me or that I am singing a song for him but I hope he likes the song,” Dhanush added.
The son-in-law of superstar Rajinikanth, Dhanush also says he is not nervous about the Sachin anthem and hopes it matches in the popularity with 'Kolaveri Di'.
“I am not nervous about it... I don't think about what people expect out of me and just believe in working hard and giving my best. When I recorded 'Kolaveri Di' I had never thought it will become such a big hit... I had just put in my best in the song. I am just doing this song for Sachin and his fans," he said.
Dhanush is also set to make his debut in Bollywood with a film titled Ranjhnaa.
