Singer-actor Dhanush’s anthem for cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was mysteriously removed from YouTube on Friday morning. The singer tweeted, “Sad dat sum1 removed sachin song link.v worked so hard 4 a week wout a mins sleep ... The song had 4,80,000 views within 24 hrs (sic).”

The song apparently also didn’t go down too well with Sachin fans.

The anthem, titled Master Blaster, was trending on Twitter on Wednesday with tags such as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘bad’. “Dhanush’s Sachin Anthem is an insult to Sachins contribution to India !... Chee! (sic),” wrote, a user Sweeetstarr1.

Talking about the song, dedicated to the ‘darling of masses’ Tendulkar Dhanush had told HT Cafe: "I have always respected Sachin for his dedication to the game and it is amazing to see how it’s kept him going.”

The song was offered to Rajinikanth’s son-in-law by health drink Boost, a brand the cricketer has been associated with for years.
