Sports biopics like Bhaag Milka Bhaag and Mary Kom have a proven track record of success at the Bollywood box office, so it was only a matter of time before someone bought the rights to the life story of Indian cricket god, Sachin Tendulkar.
Directed by British director James Ersekine and produced by Mumbai-based 200NotOut Productions, Sachin charts Tendulkar's rise from "wild child" to "virtuous hero" who "united his country". The film boasts music by A.R. Rahman.
What's more, Sachin Tendulkar will be making his acting debut in his biopic, reports India Today.
