A trailer was launched by the Master himself in Mumbai on Thursday. He interacted with Vikram Sathaye, the host and author of ‘How Sachin Destroyed My Life’ and left after spending around 15 minutes. Along with him on the stage were director James Erskine, producer Ravi Bhagchandka, the chairman and founder of Carnival Group Shrikant Bhasi, and Anil Thadani.

While they opened up on their experiences, Sachin spoke regarding the movie. “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,” he said, says a Hindustan Times report.

He also took a walk down memory lane and shared a few memories of his childhood. “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)’.”

The trailer gave the eager audience a hint of what the film has in store for Sachin’s fans. With glimpses of key scenes from the film showing moments of cricketing glory, personal moments, unseen footage from the dressing room and much more, the film promises to be every Sachin fan’s dream come true.
