    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 decisiosachinn 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, �Sachin: A Billion Dreams� is a biographical drama directed by award winning British film maker James Erskine. While the best moments of Tendulkar�s life on the field is the stuff of legends, it is his personal journey from a young boy to the cricketing icon, which the movie captures on the big screen. If it was Sachin�s pure dedication to the craft that attracted director Erskine to the subject, for producer Bhagchandka, it was a dream-come-true project. Commenting on the Tax-Free policy of the state, an excited Ravi Bhagchandka 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.� With AR Rahman�s score �Hind Mere Jind� already making waves, and the musical rendition of the popular �Sachin.... Sachin� chant adding the right notes of nostalgia; the film is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited sports films of the year. Shrikant Bhasi, Producer, Carnival Pictures said, �This is a welcome move by the state governments, and we thank them for recognising the true value of the movie. It is a moving tale, which depicts the sheer hard work and talent of our cricketing hero � Sachin Tendulkar.� The biographical drama is all set for a worldwide release on May 26th 2017.
