Many people aren’t aware that Master Blaster has asked a whopping fee to share his life’s episodes and events with the makers. Also for the first time, Sachin Tendulkar was seen promoting the movie extensively by doing interviews and also going on the shows. The real reason behind this strategy is that he is playing himself and there’s no other actor essaying him on the big screen. But one question which is on mind fo the people I how much money has master blaster charged for the master blaster. As per sources, “It’s somewhere close to Rs 40 crore. Maybe, not exactly 40 but he’s definitely got 35-38 crore for the film.”
Sachin retorted the claim that he has been given such exorbitant amount by the producers and was quoted saying that, “The suggestion on Sachin Tendulkar’s fee for ‘Sachin A Billion Dreams’ is incorrect and grossly overstated. Sachin has completely backed this project which has resulted in the creation of a commercially viable genre of docu-drama for the Indian film industry.”
Sachin: A Billion Dreams has been written and directed by James Erskine. The film incorporates the personal insights on Sachin Tendulkar’s life from his family. For the first time, his family, his mother, brother, wife, will be seen talking about the living legend.
