Seems like Bollywood has been engulfed by the Sachin mania.

With several film personalities taking time out to make sure they get to view the Master Blaster in action for the last time, Aamir Khan was no exception.

The star was watching Tendulkar’s farewell Test match at Wankhede Stadium, but as he had to attend an event at 4.30 pm for his upcoming film in Andheri, he left the stadium well in time for the function. Mr Perfectionist, however, was constantly keeping a tab on the match.

Says a source, “As soon as Aamir came to know that the West Indies had got out, he quickly took a U-turn as he did not want to miss India’s batting.”

The informer adds, “He also requested Dhoom 3 producer Aditya Chopra to postpone the event. He wanted to stay put at the stadium till the match got over. So he requested that the event start at 6 pm.”

Aamir was spotted happily clicking pictures of his favourite batsman at the stadium.

He also entered the commentary box and spoke about Sachin as well as his film Lagaan which revolved around cricket.
