Does 'God of Cricket' Sachin Tendulkar have any connection with movies? Absolutely nothing. Except for occasional bonding with a few friends from film fraternity, the cricketer has never been associated with cinema. Thus it was a rare occasion when Sachin took to Twitter to say a few words of encouragement to actress Geeta Basra for her upcoming film Second Hand Husband. Sachin and his wife Anjali have been very friendly with Geeta, who happens to be a 'close friend' of cricketer Harbhajan Singh. Tendulkar actively uses Twitter to share his opinions and views about cricket, upcoming cricketers and his friends.

This was the first occasion when he wrote about an upcoming film.

Wishing luck to Basra, Tendulkar tweeted "All the best @Geeta_Basra for the upcoming release of 'Second Hand Husband'." Within no time, the tweet created a storm among his fans. "Thank you sooooooo much Paaji!!! Your wishes truly mean a lot to me!! X" tweeted Basra, promptly. Geeta Basra is rumoured to be in a romantic relationship with Harbhajan Singh, due to which she has friendship with several cricketing stars. Cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who is a close friend of Harbhajan, has also wished Basra good luck on Twitter.

Neither Harbhajan nor Geeta have ever confirmed their relationship status, but the two have often been spotted together.

Sachin Tendulkar is close to a few film personalities, but has refused the offers to make an appearance in films, in the past. He is also known to be close to actor Aamir Khan, and had tweeted about his film PK, earlier.

Harbhajan and Geeta were also spotted dining with Sachin on the cricketer's birthday, in 2013. Geeta hails from Portsmouth, a city in south coast of England and has shifted in the recent past to Mumbai to find a foothold in the Indian film industry.

She earlier appeared in films such as The Train, Dil Diya Hai and Zilla Ghaziabad. Geeta is hopeful that her upcoming film Second Hand Husband will bring her prominently into limelight.

The comedy film features legendary actor Dharmendra in a character role while the film marks the debut of Govinda's daughter Tina Ahuja. Punjabi actor and singer Gippy Grewal will also make a debut in the film, in a lead role.
