Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar is set to play himself in a feature film.
The biopic will be directed by award-winning British director James Erskine and will trace his rise from humble beginnings in Mumbai to his retirement as the highest run-scorer in the history of the sport.
“It will be mostly about his personal life since his cricketing career is well known,” a company spokesman told the BBC.
Tendulkar retired from all forms of cricket in 2013 with an envious record of 100 international centuries.
He was also awarded the Bharat Ratna – the country’s highest civilian honour – and was nominated to the upper house of India’s parliament.
