SPN to simulcast ‘Sachin' TV premiere on 7 network channels

MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Networks (SPN) announced Wednesday that cricketing icon Sachin Tendulkar's docudrama 'Sachin A Billion Dreams' will have its television premiere on the network on Independence Day with a simulcast across 7 channels in 5 languages.  

Hitting airwaves on 15th August at 8:00 pm, viewers can watch the film on Sony MAX & Sony MAX HD in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu, Sony MAX2 in Marathi, Sony PIX, Sony PIX HD, SONY SIX and SONY SIX HD in English.   

No surprises really that the film is premiering on the network, seeing as Sachin is SPN's 'ambassador for sports'. 

Directed by Emmy-nominated British filmmaker James Erskine and produced by Ravi Bhagchandka, this is a biographical film which captures Tendulkar's cricket and personal life in substantial detail, as well as reveals few aspects of his life which have never been heard of or seen before. The movie features real footage, including clips from his matches and interviews with colleagues and family and present day stars including Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. 

The biopic also marks the acting debut of the master blaster.
