‘The Hindu” is not known to have speculative news reports without proper confirmation. Hence when it carried an article speculating that Sachin Tendulkar bought 100 acres near Mangalagiri on Vijayawada – Guntur road, it set the real estate groups abuzz. Added to that, was the fact that Sachin was indeed visiting Vijayawada on the 1st of August to inaugurate PVP’s new mall on Bunder road.
