Sachin: A Billion Dreams didn’t only succeed in tracing Tendulkar’s cricketing career but also managed to bring forth his much guarded personal life. Interviews of this legendary cricketer and from those who remained close to him during his days of struggle gave the docu-drama a personal touch and came up as a treat for this cricket-obsessed nation. What more can Sachin’s fans ask for?
More than the fans, it was Sachin’s daughter Sara Tendulkar who loved watching a biopic on her father. After watching the film, Sara said, “Growing up I never really understood the magnitude of the personality that is Sachin Tendulkar… For me, he was always my father and it was just simple. After watching the movie, it has made me truly understand what everyone else thinks of him.”
