If there is a celebrity to pick to play the role in biopic of Sachin Tendulkar – the answer is ready from the part of the master blaster, it is one and only Amir Khan. During the promotion of his film ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’, the living legend of Indian cricket stated to Mid – Day the special connection he has with the Bollywood star.
There might have many more connections in between Sachin Tendulkar and Amir Khan, both of them bear extra – ordinary talents and climbed at the pick of success in their careers.
But Sachin revealed it otherwise saying it is the ‘Lagaan’ that keeps him connected with Amir to be preferable for his bio – pic. “Amir has done Lagaan, he is a great actor and a wonderful person” – Sachin said.
Rounding his experience of acting in his autobiography, Sachin said, “My initial reaction was no. I said I can’t act. I don’t want to act; I’m a sportsperson, not an actor. So it took them a while to convince me and to let me know I have to act.”
“Because everything in my life has been documented. There are no made – up stories… there is no way to rewrite a script to show I have made extra runs. They felt no one knows what went on in my mind during the highs and lows of my career. So, we needed to show that as many guys as possible” – Sachin scribbled.
The movie ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’ is set to release on May 26th.
