Sachin: A Billion Dreams experienced incredible growth on Saturday at the Indian Box Office. Despite being a docu-drama film, it has set some benchmarks for documentary films. In fact, the film is performing on the level of a feature film. However, M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story performed better than Sachin due to the latter being an all out feature film. The numbers which Sachin: A Billion Dreams is bringing in are mind boggling as well.
The movie collected 9.20 crores on its first Saturday taking its total to 17.60 crores. Mumbai circuit has been performing well compared to other circuits. People are coming out in big numbers to watch the film. Looking at the growth, we expect the film to cross the ten crore mark today. If the movie does it, then it will stand at a total of 27 crores which is amazing for a film to collect in its first weekend.
While showing his gratitude towards the Indian audience, Sachin Tendulkar shared his feelings on Twitter in a post. He said:
“For me, it’s always about intention rather than expectation. We gave it our 100 per cent. So glad you liked it.”
Also, the film collected 8.40 crores on its first day.
