The reigning monarch of the cricket world, Sachin Tendulkar got a whopping Rs 100 crores as fees for product endorsements till a few years ago and successfully runs a restaurant in Mumbai.
However, there is a popular misconception that Sachin Tendulkar is a Billionaire measured in US Dollars. This is untrue as his 1.37 Billion of net worth is in Indian Rupees and this is Rs.137 Crore of net worth - and that is US $ 27.4 Million in US Dollars. Does anybody truly know what Sachin’s actualnet worth is? Most of what appears in the media is at best mere conjecture.
The fact is there is no official Sachin Tendulkar website or Sachin Tendulkar blog presently on the Internet. This is understandable as Sachin Tendulkar too busy a celebrity and may rarely get time to write blogs. All the sites that now exist are created by his fans and media – few of them well-informed and many ill-informed. It is therefore difficult to do a proper valuation of his presumably privately held properties – both movable and immovable.
But it is widely reported that Sachin Tendulkar makes money faster than runs. If the last available statistics are any indication, Tendulkar is the highest paid cricketer in the world and makes around Rs 61.15 Crores a year or Rs1163 per minute. These figures could be more but certainly not less.
Tendulkar is not forthcoming when asked about his finances. He reportedly remarked “What matters for me is my cricket and nothing else. Doing all these personal advertisements does not make me the most successful cricketer. All that matters is what I do on the cricket field. It all happens because of that. Winning matches for India is all what I want”.
