Kochi (Kannur), Oct.19 (ANI): A dentist in Kerala, who is an ardent fan of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, has composed a video album as a tribute to the legendry cricketer.

The album named “Shan-e-Hindustan” meaning the pride of India has been shot at different places like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Kannur (Kerala) in India. Besides, it has been composed and sung in 20 different Indian languages including Arabic and English.

Dr. C.V. Ranjit, who hails from Kannur District of Kerala, took about six months to complete the video album. It cost him about a million rupees.

“Sachin Tendulkar is a legend, he is an international icon. I have been an ardent fan of Sachin Tendulkar since 17 years and I dedicate this song to Sachin Tendulkar on the basis of his performance,” said Ranjit.

Ranjit says the reason to bring out an album in 20 different languages is to popularize it and make easy to understand for maximum people, as Tendulkar has millions of fans in and outside the country.

“Being a country where people speak different languages, I want this song to reach the common people of India. So I made it in all different languages…18 Indian languages plus Arabic and English,” added Ranjit.

It was his passion for music and cricket that resulted in a video album, said Dr. Ranjit.

He claims that he has met Sachin and discussed about this during the ODI between India and Austrailai held at Kochi on Ocober 2 and the response from Sachin was ‘all the best’ said Dr. Ranjit.

Ranjit has plans to release the video album in December and the audio CD’s will be ready by next month. His wishes to give the first copy of the album to Tendulkar, before its national release.

Cricket and players associated with the game have always held a special place in this cricket crazy country. Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar has a cult following in the country with his fans coming up with numerous fan clubs and societies.

Recently, Tendulkar, who scored a half-century in a lost cause in the Nagpur ODI, moved three rungs to join West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle at joint ninth. (ANI)
