Tendulkar touched the 86-year-old’s feet and thanked him for all he did for him over the years.

“Today, #GuruPurnima, is the day we remember those who have taught us to be better versions of ourselves. Achrekar Sir, I couldn’t have done all this without you. Don’t forget to thank your gurus and take their blessings. #AtulRanade and I just did,” the legend tweeted.
