Star studded evening for Sachin’s movie, Sachin: A Billion Dreams


Sachin has paved his way, with his umpteen effort and accomplishments to become a legendary cricket star who is revered across a country, where cricket is not a game but rather considered as a religion and  it was only time that a film got made on Sachin Tendulkar, the very man who, single-handedly brought laurels and glories galore to India. The resultant of all this was in the form of a film named Sachin: A Billion Dreams, which has been based on the life of Sachin Tendulkar


A grand premiere was organized for Sachin: A Billion Dreams. The who’s who of the country got together to watch the special screening of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s biography Sachin: A Billion Dreams.  


Sachin and wife, Anjali, welcomed guests Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani, Asha Bhosle, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Shahrukh Khan,  A R Rahman, Sonu Nigam, Gulshan Grover, Farah Khan, John Abraham, Anu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Anushka Sharma, Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge, Atul Kasbekar, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai,  Aditya Thackrey, Rahul Johri CEO BCCI and Anurag Thakur former BCCI President, Praful Patel, Kabir Khan and Mini Mathur, Sushant Singh Raput, Kriti Sanon, among others.

It’s Sachin’s side 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.” 


Amitabh Bachchan shared, “It’s a very emotional feeling, apart from the life history of Sachin, I believe it’s a fantastic film for the pride of India, and I was telling Sachin, this film should be shown to every to individual in the country, it should be shown in every school, not just because we are so proud of Sachin, but how proud he has made the country. I am so glad this movie was made.

Sachin congratulations again… you make India proud and I am sure in the coming years you will do the same.”


Sara Tendulkar said ,”Growing up I never really understood the magnitude of the personality that is Sachin Tendulkar for me he was always my father and it was just simple. After watching the movie it has made me truly understand what everyone else thinks of him and respects him. My favorite part of the movie where they speak about my parents meeting and the whole romance which I think is cute and also their wedding scene is really nice.”

The tenderness of a father’s lullaby!

Swanand Kirkire is thrilled about his first lullaby and gladder he isn’t stuck singing ‘Tu kisi rail si guzarti hai, main kisi pul sa thartharata hu’!

Swanand Kirkire is one of the most revered personalities in the world of Bollywood music, recently he has rendered a rare lullaby ‘Maa…’ for Ruchi Narain’s HANUMAN DA DAMDAAR. What makes the song special is that is a father’s lullabyThe fact that it is so uncommon, adds to its charm. 

“There are very few lullabies sung from a father’s perspective, so that in itself makes this so rare. I just had to be a part of it. Singing the song was also special because one it is from a Ruchi Narain film, Ruchi and I go a long back to the days when we were both assisting Sudhir Mishra. Then there was Sneha Khanwalkar whose work I really like. She always trying to make something different out of it. Plus there was the incentive of working on my more tender emotions. Where can we get songs that have such sweet lyrics and tender emotions that a father would have for his son,” asked Swanand Kirkire.

 

HANUMAN DA DAMDAAR with an ensemble cast featuring voice overs by Salman Khan, RaveenaTandon, Kunal Kemmu, Chunky Pandey, Vinay Pathak, Saurabh Shukla, Makrand Deshpande and Javed Akhtar is been produced by R.A.T.

Diverse, We are One.
