Mumbai: Actor Anil Kapoor has lauded the government's decision to confer the country's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, on Sachin Tendulkar and says it is a great send-off to the Master Blaster.
"I was very happy when I came to know that Sachin (Tendulkar) has been honoured with the Bharat Ratna. I think he deserves the award," Anil told reporters.
"He is one of the greatest Indians. As a sportsman, he is the greatest. He is the greatest cricketer of the world. I think it is a great send off and nothing could be greater for a sportsman who has dedicated his life honestly and truthfully to the game," he added.
