Sachin: A Billion Dreams might turn out to be the most loved documentary of recent times. The biopic on the cricketing legend had a gala premiere yesterday with stars from Bollywood attending it. The who’s who of Bollywood attended the premiere but the most heartfelt review came from Amitabh Bachchan. Taking to Twitter, Big B wrote that he is proud to be a part of a country in which Sachin ‘flows’.
Similar to Amitabh Bachchan. Aamir Khan too had a lovely message for Sachin Tendulkar. Aamir and Sachin are good friends and the actor has always spoken highly of the ‘God’ of cricket. After seeing the movie, Aamir said, “I’ve always been a huge fan of his. For any Sachin fan, it’s an emotional film because we experience his entire journey again on the big screen. When I saw the film I loved it. All of us who are fans will love it. Especially, his last speech which made us cry.”
Sachin: A Billion Dreams, tells the story of how Sachin became the God of cricket. Talking about the movie, Sachin told a leading magazine that, ” When Ravi (Bhagchandka, producer) came to me with this idea, my initial reaction was ‘no I can’t act.’ I’m a sportsman and I will always be one. I told him I didn’t want to act. It took them a while to convince me. It was a story that needed to be told as my fans had not seen many facets of me.”
Talking about what has made the movie unique, Sachin Tendulkar added, “We have added rare footage of my life. It will give audiences a new perspective to me as a person. Whatever is shown in the movie is more of what was going on in my mind during the highs and lows of my life, which no one knows about, except me.”
Now that Bollywood celebs have given the movie a thumbs up, we really hope the movie lives up to the expectations:
