This is the silver jubilee of Sachin-Anjali wedding. Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali on May 24, 1995 after five years of dating.
The two met for the first time in 1990 at the Mumbai airport. Tendulkar was returning from his first overseas tour. Anjali, who was a medical student at the time, had come to Mumbai to pick up her mother. Daughter of Anand Mehta and Annaben, a Gujarati businessman.
At the airport, he tried to reach Tendulkar, but he escaped. The duo later revealed that they fell in love at first sight. Anjali was six years older than Tendulkar.
Tendulkar has repeatedly said that he owes much to Anjali for his cricket career. Anjali, a well known pediatrician in Mumbai, took over the entire family’s responsibility after her marriage. It helped Tendulkar to focus on cricket alone.
In 1997, their daughter Sarah, and two years later their son, Arjun, came into their lives.
