Sachin Tendulkar goes gaga over Big B, Rishi

Cricket star Sachin Tendulkar has praised cine icons Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor for their movie "102 Not Out".

"102 Not Out" is based on playwright Saumya Joshi's well-known Gujarati play by the same name.

In Umesh Shukla's "102 Not Out", Big B is seen as a centenarian father to his 75-year-old son -- essayed by Rishi -- who wants to break the world record of being the oldest man alive. The record is held by a 118-year-old Chinese man.

"Many congratulations to Saumya and Umesh for this wonderful movie and to great actors Amitji and Rishiji along with Jimit Trivedi. I thought it was a fantastic movie," Tendulkar said in a statement to IANS.

"I have grown up watching Amitji and Rishiji. Their acting skill is on some different level, but I will say that in this movie there was a unique engagement in the film with many relevant messages. All in all, I will say that the movie was very good. I enjoyed it along with my friends and family," he added.

Produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Shukla's Benchmark Pictures, the film opened on May 4.
