Sachin: A Billion Dreams will capture minute details of Tendulkar's cricketing and personal life along with some unheard stories.
Brett Lee, one of the fastest bowlers to have ever graced the game of cricket is looking forward to watching the biopic on Sachin Tendulkar. Lee and Tendulkar were the fiercest rivals during their playing days and had many memorable fights playing for their respective countries, but that animosity has only been limited to the field.
Lee who is all set to make his acting debut will be paired with Tannishtha Chatterjee in the upcoming Australian film “Unindian” directed by Anupam Sharma. Though technically an Australian movie the cast and crew include many Indian faces.
When asked about making a biopic on himself Brett said, “No not now. It is not exciting for me at the moment. I am focused on ‘Unindian”. However, the former speedster showed his eagerness to watch the upcoming biopic based on the master. “It’s great to see films on cricketers’ life and journey. I am looking forward to seeing Sachin Tendulkar biopic. I like that more. He is a great player and a nice human being,” said the Australian.
Earlier this year, it was the biopic on the controversial former Indian captain Mohammed Azharuddin which made headlines. The film received mixed reviews where the character of Azhar was depicted by Emraan Hashmi. There is also a biopic on Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni scheduled to release in coming September with Sushant Singh Rajput playing the role of the Indian limited overs cricket.
People from all over the world will be waiting for the release of this eagerly awaited movie, Sachin: A Billion Dreams. The Master Blaster is set to make his acting debut at the age of 42 with the lead cast also including his son Arjun Tendulkar, depicting the role of young Sachin and Mayuresh Pem as Nitin Tendulkar.
The first poster of the film was released on 11th April 2016 through a tweet by Sachin Tendulkar which became viral on social networking sites. The Badshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan tweeted by saying, “This one I have to watch. Show me soon my friend.”
The movie captures each and every detail of Tendulkar’s cricketing and personal life but will also reveal some of the unheard stories of Sachin’s life.
Arguably the greatest batsman of all time Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar retired from all forms of cricket in the year 2013 playing his last Test against West Indies in front of his home crowd. Just like his cricketing journey, Sachin will be eager to make a swashbuckling acting debut. The release date of the movie has not been announced yet.
