Tendulkar, an IAF Honorary Group Captain, was speaking on the sidelines of the Air Force Day Parade at the Hindon air base near here.
“I wanted to get my son today. He’s very much interested in the air force,” said Tendulkar, whose son Arjun is 16 years old. Asked if his son wants to join the IAF, he said: “He’s too young to decide, but he is very interested in it.”
Tendulkar was made an Honorary Group Captain in the IAF in 2010.
