Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s documentary drama film Sachin: A Billion Dreams has collected Rs 27.85 crore in its opening weekend at the box office, according to makers.

The film released on May 26 in Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and English. “Sachin: A Billion Dreams records exceptional collections for a bio-drama, mints Rs 8.05 crore (all languages) in its opening weekend,” read a statement issued on behalf of the film’s makers.

The film, despite being in competition with previously released big entertainers like Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Half Girlfriend and Hindi Medium, and Hollywood film Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, has managed to make its presence felt at the box office despite its unique genre, said trade expert Taran Adarsh.

Narrated by Sachin himself, the film takes viewers on an inspirational journey and tells how a Mumbai-based local boy went on to become the God of Cricket. It features various photographs and videos from Sachin’s past and includes interviews of his fellow cricketers and family members.
