Sachin Tendulkar finally ended the long wait for his fans by announcing the release date of his much awaited biopic called "Sachin: A Billion Dreams"

The movie will hit the theatres on 26th May 2017.

Trailer for the movie was released way back in April 2016, but no further update was given since.

Music for the movie will be given by A.R Rahman and its being directed by James Erskine.

His autobiography, ‘Playing it My Way’ has already been released and was one of the best sellers in the country.

When the poster was released, it had created quite a buzz with the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Virat Kohli expressing interest in watching the movie.

It will be interesting to see whether it can match the records created by Dhoni's biopic called M.S Dhoni: The Untold story.

Tendulkar has been an icon for the country, ever since making his debut back in 1989.

He's the highest run getter in cricket, and has many other records including that of 100 100s to his name.

He retired from the game in 2013.
