Sachin: A Billion Dreams, the film based on the life of 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.

Commenting on the Tax-Free policy of the state, Ravi Bhagchandka, the producer of the film said “We are very pleased that Sachin: A Billion Dreams is tax free in the states of Kerala and Chhattisgarh. The film is a tribute to the hard work and determination of one individual, but it is also an inspiring lesson for the youth of today, who clearly needs a real-life hero, to prove to 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 from/about how he overcame the darker, more testing phases of his life.”

The movie which is a biographical drama, captures Tendulkar's personal journey from being a young boy to a cricketing icon.

Earlier, speaking about the movie exclusively to CNN-News18, Tendulkar had said that the movie will focus not just the highs of his career, "We have got everything in it, I have revealed what was going on in my mind at the lowest point of my career."

The movie is all set for a worldwide release on May 26th 2017.
