Amitabh Bachchan attended the screening with his son, actor Abhishek Bachchan and daughter-in-law, actress Aishwarya Rai. Abhishek was also impressed by the film and wrote on Twitter:
Sachin isn't just a person, he's an emotion... India's emotion! And after they see his film, the worlds emotion. congratulations @sachin_rt— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) May 24, 2017
Amitabh Bachchan praised Sachin Tendulkar's style on field in his blog and said: "His command of the game is of course beyond all doubt but what has ever surprised me is his great understanding of the game of cricket." He gave an example: "I had the good fortune to be in a cricket stadium, where both he and I watched a match between India and Pakistan in the famous Eden Gardens, Kolkata. His predictions and his advice on the game every few minutes - where the next ball would be bowled, how the batsman would play what stroke, why the field set was wrong and why it was right and eventually his prediction of where the game was going, was simply unimaginable. It was godlike."
Sachin Tendulkar and his wife Anjali hosted a special screening of Sachin: A Billion Dreams and invited the Bachchans, the Ambanis, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and several other Bollywood celebs. Sachin: A Billion Dream, directed by James Erskine, released today. The film features Sachin and his family - wife Anjali and children Sara and Arjun. His colleagues M S Dhoni and Virendra Sehwag also make special appearances in the film.
