Sachin Tendulkar

First time an active cricketer, rather any sportsperson, has been nominated to the Rajya Sabha. The government nominated Sachin along with veteran actor Rekha and spunky business leader Anu Aga. Sachin's nomination to the Rajya Sabha took political circles by surprise, even though it was in the works for a while.
