It’s Sachin’s sDSC_8842ide of the story and what he felt at different instances throughout his career. The movie speaks about what he went through, what were his challenges and it was interesting to get the comments from people close to hi, people who watched him over a period and the family members and close friends. Also what was nice was Anjali Bhabhi speaking what he thought about all the different things and what to die for are the family videos because that is certainly what I miss because I don’t have lot of family videos. There were quite a few videos in Sachin A Billion Dreams where Paaji (Sachin Tendulkar) is playing with the kids, moments with Anjali Bhabhi and parents. It was very inspiring and you can also see how India changed from when he made his debut to when he retired.There are lot of things that are very inspiring that is there for youngsters to see. It is not about only having the talent, it is about the hardwork that goes through and I think it is about what all he had to put in and what all he had to sacrifice, people that had supported him and it is all about the phenomenon that we call Sachin.”
