New Delhi: With just two days remaining for India’s 67th Republic Day, a video featuring cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar, tennis star Sania Mirza and wrestler Sushil Kumar among others sports personalities singing the national anthem, was released on Sunday January 24.

The Little Master shared the video on social media site today and tweeted: “Honored to be part of @thesportsheroes. Singing the National Anthem has always been special.”

“This is for the first time that our national anthem (Jana Gana Mana), will feature the sporting heroes of India, because we feel that the entire nation gets united when it is played, and there is no better way to reach out to millions of people than this. So, we feel proud that we’ve come up with this initiative,” former India spinner and co-producer of the video Nilesh Kulkarni, had earlier told the media.

“It’s a movement to inspire our young generation to play sport, because it teaches you not just to compete, but bounce back too. Our tagline is ‘apne desh ke pairon ko apne desh ki mitti par rahne do (Let our feet stay forever in our countries soil),’ he added.

The other iconic sporting personalities featured in the video are Baichung Bhutia, Dhanraj Pillay, Gagan Narang, Mahesh Bhupathi and Sunil Gavaskar.

The script for the video is written and directed it by Abhijit Panse.
