Music legend AR Rahman has lent his voice to the song. The lines and the music reflect the pride with which Tendulkar used to wield the willow during his career that saw him amass 15,921 runs in Tests and 18,426 runs in One-Day Internationals (ODI), records that seems untouchable at the moment.

The sublime composition of Rahman and the memories of Tendulkar’s heroics on the field evoke a whole spectrum of emotions in the listener, from deja vu to national pride.

The story of Tendulkar, a demigod in India, is both inspiring and exceptional, and everything associated with his ‘docu-drama’ is creating quite a buzz and fanfare, evident in how the audience received the recently released trailer of ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’.
