Arjun Tendulkar was bought for Rs. 20 lakhs by Mumbai Indians. Farhan Akhtar, on Saturday, took to Twitter and said, “I feel I should say this about #Arjun_Tendulkar. We frequent the same gym & I’ve seen how hard he works on his fitness, seen his focus to be a better cricketer. To throw the word ‘nepotism’ at him is unfair & cruel. Don’t murder his enthusiasm & weigh him down before he’s begun.”
