Tendulkar meets PM Modi, briefs him about 'Sachin

Sachin A Billion Dreams declared tax-free in Kerala and Chhattisgarh

Sources said, "It was an interesting discussion as Sachin described key aspects of his film 'Sachin: A Billion Dreams'".

Former ace cricketer Sachin Tendulkar today called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his official residence at Lok Kalyan Marg here.

"When Ravi (Bhagchandka, producer) met me in 2012, his idea was that the life of other sports personalities have been covered so there should be a film on my life". The film is all set to hit the screens on 26th May 2017.

"I've been myself (in the biopic), because that is how people have known me for a number of years". On being asked if he would have liked to be more detached, Sachin said that he would have never done that. "I have to be myself", he added. It was thrilling. For the first and last time, I saw Sachin cheering for me, playing cricket. That's why I have got other guys to talk about me. Tendulkar says that in the movie, he has revealed what went through his mind during the lowest point of his career. In the trailer of the film, the viewers could see fan mobs burning effigies of the players and peltings stones at their houses.

The flick not only takes us down the memory lane with some of the most iconic moments in the cricketer's life but also throws light on the personal life of the legend. Let me share my favourite Sachin moment with you.

Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar is definitely a cricket god in India where the sport is looked at as a religion rather than a game.

Sachin: A Billion Dreams is directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker James Erskine.
