Sachin: A Billion Dreams, the film based on the life of cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar, has been declared tax free in two states - Kerala and Chhattisgarh. A decision to this effect was taken by the Cabinet of each state, in compliance with government policies. 


Produced by Ravi Bhagchandka under the banner of 200NotOut, Sachin: A Billion Dreams is a biographical drama directed by award winning British film maker James Erskine. While the best moments of Tendulkar’s life on the  field is the stuff of legends, it is his personal journey from a young boy  to the cricketing icon, which the movie captures on the big screen.

If it was Sachin’s pure dedication to the craft that attracted director Erskine to the subject, for producer Bhagchandka, it was a dream-come-true project. 


Commenting on the tax-free policy of the state, an excited Ravi Bhagchandka said: “The film is a tribute to the hard work and determination of one individual, but it is also an inspiring lesson for the youth of today, who clearly needs a real-life hero, to prove to them that success comes to those who strive, against all odds.

Thanks to the tax-exemption in these states, many more people will be able to watch the inspiring story of Sachin Tendulkar, and learn from/about how he overcame the darker, more testing phases of his life.”With AR Rahman’s score ‘Hind Mere Jind’ already making waves, and the  musical rendition of the popular ‘Sachin.... Sachin’ chant adding the right notes of nostalgia; the film is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited sports films of the year. 


Shrikant Bhasi, Producer, Carnival Pictures said, “This is a welcome move by the state governments, and we thank them for recognising the true value of the movie. It is a moving tale, which depicts the sheer hard work and talent of our cricketing hero - Sachin Tendulkar.” The biographical drama is all set for a worldwide release on May 26th 2017.
