“This movie is not just about my cricket career. It has many different chapters and we have tried to show those chapters as well. James has shown many sides of my personality in the movie, which many people are not aware of,” said the iconic cricketer.
James Erskine, director of the film, said: “I wanted to make Sachin’s story since a long time and I didn’t know how to collaborate but then Ravi (producer) came to me and talked about this project, it was like telling India’s story through one man.”
When asked about his views on Sachin’s legacy, James said, “I have seen how Sachin is looked upon, in England so I can imagine how he is in India.”
The film is directed by James Erskine and produced by Ravi Bhagchandka with a touch of Oscar winning music composer A.R. Rahman.
The movie will hit the theatres on May 26, 2017.
