The biopic based on Indian cricketing icon, Sachin Tendulkar, Sachin: A Billion Dreams is finally out on May 26, 2017. Seeing the life journey of the greatest cricketer in the world unfold before the eyes on the silver screen is every fan’s dreams. As much as the devoted Tendulkar fans wanted to catch on the biographical film directed by James Erskine, the Master Blaster was excited to see his fans watch his life from the beginning. From hosting a glittering exclusive premier for biggest celebrities in India to promoting Sachin: A Billion Dreams on the social media, the 44-year-old did it all. But online trolls did not even spare the God of Cricket and mocked him for promoting his film extensively! Sachin: A Billion Dreams movie reviewed by Kamaal R Khan without watching it! Tendulkar fans are threatening KRK of dire consequences on Twitter!
Even the best of people are bound to face criticisms, however redundant the reason might be. Sachin Tendulkar, Bharat Ratna recipient and probably the biggest ambassador of the game faced a similar uncalled for mockery from a section of the social media. As we all know, Sachin: A Billion Dreams is one of the patiently-awaited films of 2017. After all, it is the biopic on Tendulkar and going to showcase his life, right from the childhood and also give us a chance to relive his glorious playing days.
Apart from this, the film will also show his family life with wife and children. The biopic on Sachin will also touch upon sensitive topics as the tainted match-fixing days of Indian cricket. There is a lot to look forward to because Sachin Tendulkar is not a person but an emotion which comes out in the form of his devoted followers yelling – Sachiin…Sachiin.
There are a million of Tendulkar fans including the aam janta and high-profile stars routing for Sachin Tendulkar’s movie. The euphoria sensed at the screening held for the tinsel town ahead of the release was a proof of the love everyone has in their hearts for Sachin. But a niche section of dedicated hate-mongers got down to their usual behaviour of trolling and this time they targeted the Master Blaster.
There are several tweets attacking the former Indian captain of having time to promote his film but not enough to attend the Rajya Sabha proceedings. Sachin Tendulkar is the Member of Parliament since April 27, 2012 after being nominated by the President of India. Among the other hate posts, netizens are comparing him to Bollywood stars when it comes to movie promotions. Take a look at what this section of the internet is taking potshots at the greatest batsman of all time.
