“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 or about how he overcame the darker, more testing phases of his life,” he added.
