Mumbai: Actor Vikram was in Kochi recently to promote his latest film 'Sketch'. While talking to a news channel, the actor revealed a fanboy encounter with cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.

When Vikram took Chennai bound flight from Mumbai, his co-passenger was none other than Master Blaster. But Vikram felt embarrassed when Sachin didn’t recognise him. Being a prominent star in the South Indian film industry, and having won a National Award, it’s only fair Vikram felt awkward when Sachin didn’t recognise him.

“Then someone walked up to me and sat near me. It was Sachin! I was wonderstruck and just uttered ‘Oh my god’. He turned to me and said ‘hi’. All I could say was ‘sorry sir’. I was embarrassed. I was also disappointed that he did not recognize me,” the actor told Manorama News.

Vikram said that he told he was sad that he didn’t know of him. "I asked him why he was not aware of my existence. He said he did not watch Indian movies. He watches foreign movies once in a while,” revealed Vikram.

During the two-hour flight, Vikram said he and Sachin talked mostly about their sons.
