No. While there have been media reports about Tendulkar's blood being incorporated in the paper resin pulp of the Tendulkar Opus book, both Kraken Media and the cricketing God himself have denied it.

Karl Fowler of Kraken Media, too, said he had been misunderstood and no blood drops from Tendulkar would blot any page.

What will be part of the book will be Sachin's DNA! That's right. A mouthswab sample has been taken from Sachin Tendulkar. The Kraken Media website states: "Using rare DNA technology, the sample will be used to create a stunning two-metre wide multicoloured artwork in the Opus".

And what has the Little Master himself to say of this gigantic book?

At the official website (see link below), in Sachin Tendulkar's own words: "I have always shied away from doing books in the past, because I felt there was so much more for me to achieve on the cricket pitch. But now as I approach the end of my career, I think it is the right time for me to tell my story in detail for the first time, and I can't think of a better way than in an Opus."
