“#SachinABillionDreams shows an UPWARD TREND… Fri 8.40 cr, Sat 9.20 cr. Total: ₹ 17.60 cr [all languages]… FANTASTIC for a docu-drama,” Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter.
With the release of Sachin: A Billion Dreams, Sachin Tendulkar became the first Indian to have a biographical drama on his life journey where he is portraying his own self.
Sachin has been referred to as the God of cricket but he means a lot more to his true blue fans. He’s an emotion – an emotion too far to be fetched and the director, James Erskine has beautifully encapsulated the emotion of an entire nation in Sachin: A Billion Dreams. The movie has made Sachin fans ecstatic and their love for him has flooded social media.
