Sachin A Billion Dreams is a docu-drama but from the way it is earning, it can put many feature films to shame. Sachin Tendulkar should be credited for it of course because Indians still love, adore and respect him like they used when he was still a part if the national cricket squad. He is still their favourite even though he has retired. Even the members of the team wanted to win the 2011 World Cup for him, that's the kind of respect he commands. So no wonder that the film is earning continuously. In six days, the film has earned Rs 38.80 crore.
Taran Adarsh revealed the figures saying, "#SachinABillionDreams Fri 8.60 cr, Sat 9.20 cr, Sun 10.25 cr, Mon 4.20 cr, Tue 3.50 cr, Wed 3.05 cr. Total: ₹ 38.80 cr [all languages]." As you can see, there's only been a meager drop in collections from Tuesday to Wednesday. That proves that this docu-drama is getting all the love. Interestingly, even trade expert, Akshaye Rathi, turned out to be such a fan of Master Blaster that he refused to predict box office data for the film when we spoke to him before the film's release. “It’s a docu-drama which is not in the commercial, mainstream format. The subject of this film is Sachin Tendulkar, one of the most popular icons, who is also a living legend in India. People don’t just love him but worship him. Very honestly, this is one movie where it’s about a person who has made India so proud that I wouldn’t even like to try and analyse the box office figures here. This movie is not for the box office. This movie is a tribute to a man who has made the dreams of millions of Indians come true, who has given us so much of happiness every time he walked into the stadium with his bat. I really think it’s not a good idea to judge this film by its box office potential. Just go out there and watch the journey for this legend.” And the audience seconded his thought process.
