Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar celebrated Women’s Day on Friday and decided to cook for the most important women in his life – his mother, wife Anjali and daughter Sara.
The Master Blaster turned chef to cook baingan ka bharta, which his mother used to delight him with during his childhood.

Tendulkar shared the video of himself in action on Twitter, saying: “This #WomensDay, let’s do something special for the important women in our lives. Join me and share your own sweet gestures of love using #SeeHerSmile Happy Women’s Day!”
In a two-minute video, the batting great, who has 100 centuries in international cricket, was seen in the video cooking baingan ka bharta with much ease.
“Today, I am going to make baingan bharta especially for my mother,” Tendulkar said as the video began.
“This bharta is for Anjali, my mother and Sara. I want my mother to taste this first because she spent hours and hours cooking this for me when I was a kid,” he added.
Tendulkar also played a prank on the camera and acted as if he cut his finger while chopping the vegetables for the dish.
The 45-year-old former India batting great was left emotional after his mother complimented him for the dish. “I made baingan ka bharta, see if you like it. Tell me if tastes like how you make it. Is it spicy?” Tendulkar asked his mother in Marathi.
“No, it turned out well. It’s really tasty,” she replied.
“That’s how mothers are. Even if you fail in any attempt, they never tell you,” Tendulkar said, concluding the heart-warming video.
