The entire Indian cricket team attended the special premiere of the movie, with skipper Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh leading the contingent. The players also took turns to click pictures with the Master Blaster on his special day. But what happened inside the hall was a big surprise. During the interval of the movie Sachin rose from his seat, went near the screen and started promoting his movie.
‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’ traces his cricket journey, as he ruled the pitch for 24 years carrying the hopes and aspirations of a billion people on his shoulders and smashed records to attain his iconic position. Sachin had invited the cricket team for the premiere and everything was going fine till the interval. When people started getting up from their seats to go for refreshments, Sachin stopped them and gave a speech about the making of the movie. In fact so much so that the cricketers asked Sachin to let them watch the post interval part also, which was getting delayed due to Sachin’s speech.
Sachin has been taking the promotions very seriously as he is new to the industry and doesn’t want to leave any margin for more effort. But in doing so he has been taking it little over board. There is also a rumor that on 26th May all people will get a voice message from an unknown number where Sachin will ask them to go and watch his movie. Movie makers are impressed with Sachin’s dedication towards the visual medium and want to learn new tricks of promotion form him. Sachin meanwhile has no time to give coaching and stuff and wants to utilize all his time for the promotions.
