'Sachin Tendulkar could play Doctor Strange'
....says Benedict Cumberbatch, who'll be reprising the role of Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel superhero film Avengers: Infinity War
British star Benedict Cumberbatch says Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar will fit the role as superhero Doctor Strange quite well.
The actor, who is seen as the superhero, spoke about it when he met former Australian cricket sensation Brett Lee during the Avengers: Infinity War press tour in Singapore.
When quizzed on cricket, Cumberbatch said, "Graham Gooch was my hero when growing up. I loved playing cricket and because I was a wicketkeeper, I had my eye on Jack Russell."
When Brett Lee asked Cumberbatch for his views on who would best fit the role of Doctor Strange, he said, "Sachin Tendulkar would do quite well in fitting the role as Doctor Strange as he is quite extraordinary."
Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War is set to release in India on April 27.
