Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar made singing debut collaborating with singer Sonu Nigam for 'Cricket Wali Beat'.

Nigam said that Tendulkar, who made many records on the cricket field in his 24-year international career that ended in November 2013, is a very good singer.

The song had its world TV premiere on the grand finale of singing TV reality show "Indian Idol 9" on Sunday night on Sony Entertainment Television, the firstpost.com reported.

The lyrics of the 'Nacho Nacho Nacho Sare Cricket Waali Beat Pe' are quirky and they go something like this: "Gend aayi, bala ghuma, mara chaka, Sachin, Sachin… nacho nacho sab cricket wali beat pe."

Talking about the song, Sonu said: "I am glad to be part of Sachin's new innings. The song that he has sung with me is called 'Cricket Wali Beat'. I was very surprised to see the way he was pitching right. That's why I believe that when God blesses someone with genius, it spills in other faculties too."

"He is a very good singer. We did not use pitch corrector on his voice as he was singing in the right sur (tone) and (despite being) the shy person that he is, he got extremely comfortable the moment I kind of increased the masti (fun) quotient while we were shooting the video. It was wonderful and I am very happy that people are loving the song," the singer said.

Sonu judges "Indian Idol 9" with composer Annu Malik and choreographer-director Farah Khan. The finale saw three contestants -- LV Revanth, Khuda Baksh and PVNS Rohit -- competing with one another on stage.

About having Sachin on the show's stage, Sonu said: "'Indian Idol' is my family, my house, my domain and Sachin coming in and releasing the song for its world TV premiere, is a matter of pride for all of us."

"Sachin Tendulkar is a phenomenon not just for India, but for the world, especially for the world of cricket. When he is given the title of god, it's not just by chance. His whole demeanour, whole career, entire reputation and the spotless career that he has had, is the reason why he is called the God of cricket," Sonu added.

The Arjuna Award winner had earlier released his autobiography named "Playing It My Way", and recently he launched his digital app 100MB.

    While Nepal should address voices that question the constitution, it should not undermine the document’s dignity and longevity if the country wants to establish a constitutional culture. No constitution can fulfill all wishes. The drafters of the present constitution should not feel guilty in not securing the consent of all citizens. If the constitution is not fundamentally discriminatory, it has chances to grow further.
