Making a rather rare appearance, Sachin Tendulkar attended Rajya Sabha proceedings on Thursday.
Tendulkar listened to the debate and discussion during the Question Hour. The cricket icon is a nominated member of the Upper House.
Tendulkar has often remained absent from the Upper House.
In the past also questions have been raised about the absence of celebrities nominated to the Upper House.
Samajwadi party member Naresh Agarwal had recently raised some questions in this regard.
Apart from Tendulkar, another iconic sportsperson, boxing star Mary Kom was present in the Upper House.
However, Tendulkar's presence led to a screenshot and the former Indian captain was eventually trolled on Twitter for his rare appearance.
Isn't this the way we all react?

Was it a promotional move?
Pujara's innings wasn't that bad to be honest. He slammed his 13th century...
