Mumbai is for all Indians, says Sachin

November 13, 2009 23:37 IST

In a rebuff to the "Marathi Manoos" plank of Shiv Sena and Raj Thackeray's MNS, batting maestro and iconic Maharashtrian Sachin Tendulkar today said, "Mumbai is for all Indians."

"Mumbai belongs to India. That is how I look at it. And I am a Maharashtrian and I am extremely proud of that but I am an Indian first," said Tendulkar responding to a specific query at a media meet in New Delhi on the eve of completing 20 years in international cricket.
