Why did Sachin reject the offer?
Sachin told that after playing an inning of 143 runs against Australia at Sharjah in 1998, he was very much discussed and people were praising him fiercely. During this, he got offers to do an advertisement, in which a ball was coming flying and Sachin had to hit it outside the stadium. Sachin refused to do this advertisement, Sachin said that there is an insult to cricket in this.
He worships this game. In such a situation, he cannot do this advertisement. Later the script was changed and Sachin did this advertisement.
Sachin himself disclosed this story in Infosys program. Sachin was losing a lot of money by leaving this advertisement, but he was not ready to hit the ball out of the stadium.
Apart from this, Sachin also turned down advertisements many times, because the script of the advertisement did not match his ideas.
