Sachin: A Billion Dreams tax free in two states

The biopic has received tax exemptions from Kerala and Chhattisgarh

Published: 22nd May 2017

Sachin: A Billion Dreams, the film based on the life of cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar, has been declared tax free in two states – Kerala and Chhattisgarh. A decision to this effect was taken by the cabinet of each state, in compliance with government policies.

Produced by Ravi Bhagchandka under the banner of 200NotOut, this biographical drama is directed by award winning British film maker James Erskine. 

In a statement about the tax-exemption, Ravi Bhagchandka said, "The film is a tribute to the hard work and determination of one individual, but it is also a lesson for the youth of today, who need a real-life hero to show them that success comes to those who strive against all odds. Thanks to the tax-exemption in these states, many more people will be able to watch the inspiring story of Sachin Tendulkar and learn about how he overcame the darker, more testing phases of his life.”

With AR Rahman’s score, and the song Hind Mere Jind already making waves, the film, which is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited sports films of the year, is all set for a worldwide release this week.
