The much-awaited trailer of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s biopic ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’ was launched in a packed Juhu auditorium on Thursday evening.

During the launch, when Sachin was asked about his feeling he said, “I am feeling as nervous as I was at the first ever press conference of my life, after my first hundred in 1990, in Manchester.”

When asked about the movie which is his docu-drama, he said, “This movie is not just about my cricket. There are other chapters of my life as well. I never thought something like this is going to happen in my life. All I wanted to do was to pick up a bat and play cricket for India. That was my dream,”

Talking about his fondness for cinema, the master blaster shared an incident from his childhood, he said, “I was around 3-4 when at home, my family were constantly talking about a movie called ‘Maa’ and then finally a day arrived when our entire family decided to go watch it in a theatre. We were travelling in a bus and the conductor naturally approached us and asked me ‘Which ticket do you want?’ Instead of telling him Bandra or Santacruz, I blurted out ‘Maa movie ki ticket chahiye (Give me a ticket for the movie Maa)’.”
