Understand this, two things are insanely popular in India: Cricket and Movies. So, just imagine, when these two things will come together, what kind of gigantic response the situation will have.
Sachin Tendulkar is the greatest batsman in the history of cricket and there’s a movie releasing on his life on 26th May. Are you getting the idea? Billions of people across the world are fans of Sachin’s batting and how he had impacted the sports. So, we are thinking ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams‘ has a big potential to set the box office on fire.
Just last year, when a biopic on Dhoni’s life: M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story released in September, it went on to collect more than 100 crore in India. Sachin has a worldwide fan following and everyone is highly excited to watch the master blaster’s life on the big screen and witness his legendary life once more.
In India alone, Sachin: A Billion Dreams can mint big and it can actually enter the top grossers of 2017. The only drawback it can have is that it is a documentary and not a feature film. It remains to be seen how the crowd reacts to it as Indian audience is not known to give huge response to documentaries.
Directed by James Erskine, the film is releasing on 26th May, 2017 and its music is composed by A. R. Rahman.
