Speculations over. It’s not Arjun Tendulkar to play Papa Sachin’s childhood in the biopic Sachin: A Billion Dream. Child actor Mikhail Gandhi is picked to play Sachin’s childhood role in the biopic.
About 300 kids were audited to recreate Sachin’s childhood days for the movie. The makers of the movie are committed to make the movie closest to reality. The docu-drama is scheduled for May 26 release.
A two-minute trailer has registered over 2.2 crore views on youtube in three weeks since its release on April 14, 2017.
The main criteria for selection was the candidate had to look close to the younger version of Sachin and he should also be able to adapt his mannerisms with ease and conviction. Mikhail Gandhi was chosen to essay the role of young cricketing legend, among the children who were screen-tested.
The Master Blaster was very mischievous and full of mirth during his childhood and some of the many pranks he pulled off on his buddies have also been recreated for this bio-drama.
The movie captures the cricket and personal life of the master blaster in detail, revealing aspects of his life, which have never been heard of or seen before.
