Sachin Tendulkars biopic to release on May 26

For the first time in almost three years, fans will get to see the 'Master Blaster' back on the cricket field with a bat in his hand but this time through the silver screen.

Sachin Tendulkar tweeted to announce that his biographical movie, 'Sachin: A Billion Dreams' is all set to release on May 26. Incidentally, this is the date, Tendulkar announced his retirement from the Indian Premier League in 2013. He dramatically announced that he would not play in the next season of the IPL, moments after winning the trophy with Mumbai Indians.

The teaser of the movie takes you down memory lane and gives you the chills showing his journey from a 'Wild Child' to a 'Virtuous Hero' as  the background is filled with the familiar chants of 'Sachin Sachin'.

Two biopics on Indian cricketers released last year. Azhar - based on former captain Mohammad Azharuddin's life and MS Dhoni -  the Untold Story.

After the stupendous success of the Dhoni biopic, people are eagerly waiting to know the life story of one of the most iconic Indian cricketer.

Tendulkar pulled the curtain down on his illustrious career in November, 2013 when India took on the West Indies. In his last and 200th Test in Mumbai, he made an elegant 74, ending his international career with 34357 runs.

If the success of Tendulkar's autobiography, 'Playing It My Way' is any indication, the biopic could be another raging hit. The book was acclaimed by former players and fans who have been given a rare glimpse into the life of man who captured the imagination of the cricketing world for a quater of a century.

It had also entered the Limca Book of Records for being the best-selling adult hardback across both fiction and non-fiction categories. The book also holds the record in retail value terms having logged up Rs. 13.51 crore with its cover price being Rs. 899.
