Sachin: A Billion Dreams collection: Just as the cricket stadium had filled with chants of ‘Sachin-Sachin’ every time the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar came to the ground, his movie is also echoing his name at the box office across the country. A docu-drama based on the life of cricket’s living legend, Sachin: A Billion Dreams has a “wonderful” opening weekend with a business of Rs 28.05 crore, revealed movie critic and analyst Taran Adarsh. The analyst on Monday took to Twitter and called the movie “an exception” in the genre, while sharing its collection. Adarsh further posted that the biopic on Sachin Tendulkar’s life faced a “tough competition” from Johnny Depp starrer Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, but the latter proved no opposition.

The docu-drama directed by James Erskine that features music by the musical maestro AR Rahman has been released in 2,800 screens worldwide in five languages including Hindi, English, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu. After the first weekend of its release, the movie has minted Rs 24.45 crore, Rs 42 lakh, Rs 1.20 crore, Rs 93 lakh and Rs 1.05 crore in all the five languages, respectively, shared Adarsh.
