Nivin Pauly’s 1983 was a sports drama that was based on the cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar’s career. Recently, the star told the cricketer that he had tried to approach him to watch the film on its release in 2014 but it did not happen.
However, now that Nivin Pauly is associated with the Kerala Blasters Football team which is co-owned by Sachin Tendulkar, he got an opportunity to build a rapport with him.
