Indian batting legend, Sachin Tendulkar, is going to make his entrance in the film industry with a biopic made on his life. In this film, he will play his own character.
200NotOut, which is a Mumbai-based production house, has told the BBC that the film will be directed by James Erskine, an award winning British director.
According to a spokesperson of this company, most of the part of this film will be about his personal life since his cricketing career is well known.
The films name is yet to be fixed. It is expected that the duration of this film will be between 90 minutes and two hours. Krishna Ananthan has told the BBC that their production company is aiming to release it by the end of this year or early next year. The main audience of this film will be Tendulkar’s fans all over the world.
