After wrapping up a career full of great innings on the cricket pitch, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is ready to make a splash in the film world. He will star as himself in the biopic, Sachin – A Billion Dreams.
The first teaser of the film, which is directed by Emmy-nominated director James Erskine, is a tribute to the master batsman’s achievements. It traces the journey of Sachin Tendulkar and takes us back to his childhood when his father’s words shaped him as a person.
The teaser also shows him as a difficult child who fought in the streets. It ends with thousands of people chanting Sachin’s name in a stadium.
