Tendulkar receives blessings from PM Modi for "Sachin"

Tendulkar receives blessings from PM Modi for

The film is directed by James Erskine and Music is given by AR Rahman.

"I've been myself (in the biopic), because that is how people have known me for a number of years".

"I continue to be slightly uncomfortable (to talk about myself). It took me a while to say yes", Tendulkar told PTI in an interview here. Imagine you playing a game of cricket and having God himself cheering for you, while you are at it. To watch him get involved and cheer for me was so unreal for me. But then, he is Sachin Tendulkar, things have to happen in his style. There were five World Cups in between. It is about chasing my dreams.

Apart from Hindi, Sachin: A Billion Dreams will release in Marathi and Tamil.

The 2000 match-fixing scandal that rocked Indian cricket and shook its foundation is hardly ever been discussed by Tendulkar. In the trailer of the film, the viewers could see fan mobs burning effigies of the players and peltings stones at their houses.

Asked what prompted him to finally open up, Tendulkar said, "The ups and downs have been there in my life and that's part and parcel of any sportsman's career".

In a video that he shared, Khan said, "Well, you know how we are such huge fans of his".

The flick not only takes us down the memory lane with some of the most iconic moments in the cricketer's life but also throws light on the personal life of the legend. I have spoken about those moments. It also features Sachin's wife, Anjali, his son, Arjun, and cricketers Virender Sehwag and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

More than a friend, he is a fan of Sachin and with his movie, "Sachin- A Billion Dreams" coming up, "The Perfectionist" shares his favourite "Sachin" moment as he simultaneously wishes the "Master Blaster" luck ahead of the release of his biopic on May 26, 2017.
