Mumbai, Apr 29: Sachin Tendulkar must be having a different experience after being nominated to the Rajya Sabha. While many people welcome his decision of accepting Congress' proposal, many others express their disappointment with the cricketer. However, Sachin is still there in the good book of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Amitabh, who is also known as Big B, on Saturday, Apr 28 praised Sachin and actress Rekha while stating that both Rekha and Sachin "deserved" to be nominated to the Rajya Sabha.

The megastar claimed, "In each session of Parliament, President nominates few set of people for Rajya Sabha from the fields of art, film etc. It is an honorary position. Whoever nominated for this (Rajya Sabha) are deserving people (sic)."

Both Sachin and Rekha have been nominated to the Upper House following the recommendation of the Ministry of Home affairs. While Sachin's foray into the political world has been received with great applause from various political circles, few people such as Baba Ramdev and Sanjay Dutt showed their disappointment.
