Exhibiting a rare unity, members of parliament recently advocated the Bharat Ratna, the country's highest civilian award, for cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. After witnessing Sachin score 200 runs, the first ever double ton in One Day International (ODI) cricket against South Africa on February 24 in Gwalior, Maharashtra chief Minister Ashok Chavan had said that the State government would recommend his name to the Central government for the Bharat Ratna award.

The support to honor Sachin with the Bharat Ratna has gained momentum with the Bollywood stars expressing their open support for his name's recommendation. First it was Shahid who expressed his support with Sachin, and now its Hrithik. Hrithik also filed a petition in support of Sachin.

Sachin who opens in one-day matches, smashed 200 not-out off 147 balls to help India post 401-3 in the allotted 50 overs. The maiden double century guided India to a 153-run win and a series victory over South Africa. The 36-year-old batsman holds the record for most runs in Tests (13,447) and ODIs (17,598) and most centuries in Tests (47).
