Tendulkar at the Lagaan screening

From the Aamir Khan blog:

...I must tell you guys a really funny incident. I had invited him [Sachin Tendulkar] to a screening and when the climax began I was watching him really closely. When the first British wicket fell, which was a run-out, the moment the ball hit the wickets he leapt out of his chair with his hand flying up in the air, shouting out an appeal loudly. I just cracked up watching him. It was great to watch him through the climax behaving like us cricket fans.

I might add that Tendulkar was yet again given out falsely in the final game of the Natwest series at Lord's, this time by Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar, who has been a rival of India throughout the series. Dear oh dear...
