New Delhi,  Sachin Tendulkar in his much-loved film "Sachin: A Billion Dreams" said that every time he was under stress he would listen to Bappi Lahiri's song "Yaad aa raha hai". The singer says he's as much a fan of the cricket star.

"I have completed 48 years in the industry... Songs are working, everything is going good. I love Sachin Tendulkar, I am a cricket lover and have been following the sport since childhood... Sachin is the God of cricket," Lahiri told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

The 64-year-old singer says he is touched by Tendulkar's praise.

"This is a huge gift for me. I am so touched and happy that he has appreciated my song," he added.

"Sachin: A Billion Dreams", a docudrama-biographical film directed by James Erskine, is based on the life of Tendulkar. It captures Tendulkar's cricket and personal life in substantial detail, as well as revealing a few aspects of his life which have never been heard of or seen before.

The film will be showcased on Sony Max on August 15.
