Football News

As a young lad, growing up with dreams of playing cricket for his beloved India Sachin Tendulkar would not have dared to dream that one day he would play himself in a film about his life. However, this is exactly what is going to happen.

Tendulkar has been cast in the role of himself by award-winning British director James Erskine who will work with the Mumbai-based production company 200NotOut in order to produce the biopic of the Little Master. Shooting of the film has been on-going this year and is likely to continue during most of 2015 with a release date yet to be finalised.

The film is yet to be given a name but knowing Sachin, and the way he has conducted himself throughout his career, it is likely to be a simplistic but effective title.

Fame and fortune

Tendulkar’s private life, unlike many other famous sportsmen and women, has not been splashed all over the media so the film is likely to provide an insight into a private man away from the cricket field, which most people will not be aware of.

Tendulkar has not let his fame and fortune affect him and he must be admired for being so professional throughout the whole of his career. He is certainly a role model that many would do well to follow.

Viewers will also get an insight into what makes him tick away from the cricket field, the demands placed on him, his relationships with his family and ultimately what it is like being a global superstar 24 hours a day.

Tendulkar enjoyed a glittering 24-year cricket career since making his Indian debut as a 16-year-old back in 1989. He has scored 34,357 international runs in all formats, holds the record for the most Test match and One-Day international runs scored, the most appearances in both forms of the game, and has hit an astonishing hundred international centuries. Tendulkar retired from the game in 2013 with a record that some say may never be beaten.

I am sure Tendulkar’s many supporters and admirers from all over the World will look forward to the film when it is finally released.
