He recently announced the release of the official trailer of the film 'Sachin A Billion Dreams', based on his life on Twitter. It traces Sachin's life from his childhood days to India's triumph in the 1983 World Cup, which inspired him to take up the game. The film releases on May 26.

Sachin, who has been associated with the Indian Premier League (IPL) since the very beginning in 2007, must be extremely happy that Mumbai Indians are currently atop the points table with eight points from five matches that includes only one loss.

While Mumbai Indians are on a roll keeping Sachin happy, the legend clearly made the day for one special fan who will cherish this moment forever. Mumbai Indians next take on fifth-placed Kings XI Punjab in Indore on April 20.
