She might be an actress now but when it comes to sports, Deepika Padukone shows off her dad Prakash Padukone's genes.

This time Deepika is very keen on watching Sachin Tendulkar’s much-awaited 200th Test match which also happens to be his last one from professional cricket.

Dippy is quite keen on witnessing the finale and has been asking people around if they are willing to attend it as well.

A source close to her says, “Coming from a sportsperson’s family and being badminton player herself, Deepika enjoys watching all sorts of sports and cricket is no exception. She has been attending Indian Premier League’s matches for a while now and she wishes to be present at Wankhede Stadium to see the final Test of her favourite cricketer.”

Incidentally, Deepika has been travelling in and out of city to promote her upcoming film Ram-Leela whose release is to coincide with the second day of the Test match. “Deepika is asking her friends and film crew members if they are going for the match as she does not want to miss such a historic day. She feels cricket won’t be the same without Sachin. She has grown up watching him play.”

Deepika’s spokesperson confirms the news.

Not too long ago, Ranveer Singh had told HitList that he will make sure that he’s part of the historic match too.
