"My relationship with healthcare runs very long thanks to the multiple injuries throughout my career. In fact, I would not have been able to serve Indian cricket and chase my dreams but for the support and care of many medical professionals and physiotherapists," Tendulkar said after inaugurating Aster CMI Hospital in Bengaluru.

Tendulkar said "I also have a medical professional at home which has been my best partnership. Medical issues are not restricted to sportspersons and I can tell you from experience that it is the quality of care which heals."

"That is where Dr Moopen and his team have made a special and consistent effort trying to live their philosophy of we will treat you well. Physical fitness and well-being is key, and we must each pledge towards a swasth bharat," he said.
