55 days of training. One pair of trousers. This is Sachin…
This is the real-life tale of a small boy with big dreams, and his journey to become the ‘God of Cricket’ and the most celebrated sportsperson in his country, India, and around the world. He made his test debut in the national team at just 16 years of age, and his unmatched career as cricketer and captain was as a result of determination, hard work and passion.
In this biopic, Sachin Tendulkar stars as himself, alongside other Indian cricketing greats including Mahendra Singh (M.S.) Dhoni and Virender Sehwag, with Mayuresh Pem as Nitin Tendulkar and Mayur More as Ajit Tendulkar.
Small in stature but regarded as the ‘God of Cricket’ by cricket fans, Sachin is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket, and is the leading run-scorer and century-maker in both the Test and One Day International formats of the game. He is considered to be the most complete batsman of his time, and is arguably the most popular cricketing icon the world has seen.
