Sonu Nigam's fan shared another picture, which was re-tweeted by the singer.
The role reversal picture, which got multiple shares on Twitter, features Sachin holding the mic and Sonu a bat. The Bharat Ratna award-winner revealed that he "didn't practice much." DNA quoted the cricketer as saying: "I did not practice much. It was just then and there that I sang. I heard the tune. I quite liked it. After that, I was asked to practice a little bit, which I did in the studio. Before that, I had not practiced much. I was used to listening to music and humming songs. It helped." The song will reportedly be launched on April 2.
Sachin's love for music is a well-known fact as earlier this year he shared the stage with Ustad Zakir Hussain and played tabla.
Sharing the stage with the Ustad & sharing beats that created a rhythm so unique. It's an experience I'll hold close to my heart, always pic.twitter.com/V4VSsrKign? sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) January 10, 2017
Sonu Nigam, who was also there at the launch event of Sachin's app, was all praises for the cricketer and mentioned that he didn't require a "pitch corrector" and that he is "blessed with something divine". DNA quoted the singer as saying: "People fall in three categories - talented, genius and blessed. Sachin falls in the blessed category. I first heard him sing and told the composer Shamir Tandon that Sachin is one to whom god has given something extraordinary. He is blessed with something divine. The master batsman had the right pitch. It was a heartening feeling. We did not have to use the pitch corrector for Sachin. He did a very good job without the pitch corrector."
Musicians like Wajid Khan and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan congratulated Sonu Nigam for the collaboration.

Sachin also clarified that singing is a one-off for him and he would not venture into it much. He is also coming up with his biopic titled, Sachin: A Billion Dreams. Lat month, Sachin shared the official poster of his biopic.
The movie, which is directed by James Erskine, stars Sachin Tendurlkar, his son Arjun Tendulkar and actor Mayuresh Pem in pivotal roles. Sachin: A Billion Dreams is scheduled to hit the theatres on May 26.
