Tendulkar shared that in his heydays, he used to play video games in parlours. “During my stint with Yorkshire in 1992 and during 2003 World Cup in South Africa, I used to visit video parlours along with team-mates. Even at home, I do these stuff and my son joins in too. I love doing it,” he said and added that the company worked on this project for two years and shot his batting in a high-tech studio in London where a James Bond movie had been filmed.
The batting maestro had to wear a special suit with 26 to 27 receptors on his body, which captured the body movements and footwork while he displayed his batting skills. Thirty six cameras were used for the shooting. More than anything else, the gaming platform speaks of his important innings than the 100 centuries he scored, Tendulkar said.
