Sachin: A Billion Dreams: Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s biopic Sachin: A Billion Dreams has done tremendous business at the box office. While the film has received positive reviews from critics, audience, especially the Little Master’s fans, all have appreciated the docu-drama. However, what is on everyone’s mind is, what was Sachin paid. It has been learned that the former batting mainstay has charged around Rs 40 crore for the movie, according to a Dainik Bhaskar report. The movie has so far collected Rs 32.25 crore at the domestic box office. “Sachin A Billion Dreams holds well on Mon… Fri 8.60 crore, Sat 9.20 crore, Sun 10.25 crore, Mon 4.20 crore. Total: ₹ 32.25 crore [all languages]. India biz,” well-known trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted this afternoon.

Last year, following the release of M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, it was said that the makers had paid the former Indian captain as much as Rs 40 crore to buy the rights to his life story. However, director of the film Neeraj Pandey had rejected it as rumour, according to Indian Express report.

The movie was released on May 26 across 2,800 screens. “We are releasing the film across 2,800 screens out of which 2,450 are in India. It’s first of its kind film being made in India — a docu-drama feature film that too on a celebrated personality like Sachin Tendulkar. We are hopeful the audience will like to see his journey on screen,” Anil Thadani, who is distributing the film, was quoted as saying by PTI.

“Sachin: A Billion Dreams” has shown real footage including clips of various essential matches of Sachin, how he dealt in intense and tough situations, and it will also throw light on his personal life.

The film is releasing in five languages including English, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu. The film has been declared tax free in Odisha, Kerala and Chhattisgarh.

The biographical drama is written and directed by James Erskine and produced by Ravi Bhagchandka and Carnival Motion Pictures under the banner 200 NotOut Productions. Oscar Winning music director A R Rahman has composed the music for the film.
