Sachin Tendulkar’s biopic is all making a lot of noise over the internet as the movie has received an amazing response. People were not just exciting watching the superstar of cricket world’s biopic but also curious to know more about his childhood since the movie has given enough glimpses of his childhood.
No doubt the young child actor has played his role so well, that one might think he is the young Tendulkar, indeed. Hence today’s post on Mikhail Gandhi, the young actor to play Sachin Tendulkar in Sachin: A Billion Dreams.
Meet eight years old Mikhail Gandhi, the cutely adorable actor, who played young Sachin Tendulkar in Sachin: A Billion Dreams.
Though this wasn’t his first silver screen act as he has acted in a Telugu movie before. His career of acting started with his short commercials, in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
But who knew that young Mikhail would play Sachin Tendulkar, in Sachin’s biopic? Not even his parents.
His mother said “We got a call from a casting agent who didn’t inform us anything about the film he was supposed to audition for. When we reached there, I found out he’d bagged the role for the film Sachin: A Billion Dreams. Almost 300 kids had auditioned for the role.”
But the young and talented artist made it. Not just his parents Mikhail himself was amazed to see himself on the silver screen playing Sachin. He said, “When I saw myself on the big screen, it was the happiest day of my life so far.”
A little he knew himself that he would be beating other 299 kids and bag this role. And his talent, we all have witnessed by now.
We wish young Sachin (Mikhail Gandhi) all the very best for future. And hope to see him act anytime soon.
