The Tamil actor's "Sachin Anthem" is released on YouTube. The song, titled "Master Blaster you are our Boost," is an initiative by the makers of Boost, a health drink, for which the cricket legend has been the brand ambassador since 1989.

"It's a great honour to sing for a legend like Sachin Tendulkar. I am happy that I have been chosen to do this. He is the pride of our nation. When I was offered to do the song I didn't think twice and just knew that I had to do it. I have really worked hard on the song and I hope people enjoy it," said Dhanush, who is the son-in-law of Tamil superstar Rajnikant.
Dhanush, who has not met Sachin so far, has said he is not nervous about the song, but doubts if the cricket legend knows him.
The song was shot on a railway station set in Ramoji Film city near Hyderabad, India, and features a flash mob. More than 400 people worked on the video.
"Sachin anthem is out! Check it out folks :). Kolaveri Di' became a national sensation. Hope the anthem on Sachin follows suit," music composer Anirudh Ravichander said.
