Remember this #throwback ad when Shah Rukh Khan dressed up like Sachin Tendulkar?

Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar will soon be releasing his biopic, ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’, starring himself. The biopic would revolve around his personal and cricket life.

The film is scheduled to release on May 26 and the trailer has created significant interest in his fans all over the world.

Sachin shares a great rapport with several Bollywood stars, who are also lending their complete support to his Bollywood debut.

Even superstar Shah Rukh Khan took to Twitter to wish Sachin luck and called him his guiding light. “I believed, when you did well, I would too and when you didn’t, I will fail. Like a billion others I miss my guiding light. All the best for the film,” Shah Rukh posted on Twitter on Wednesday.

“Zindagi me haar na hoti to koi kabhi jeet ta nahi aur kuch seekhta bhi nahi (Had there been no loss, nobody would’ve won and learned anything). Touched by your words like a billion others, love you Shah Rukh Khan,” Sachin also wrote.

This conversation was a major throwback to the time when two of India’s legend came together for a soft drink commercial.  Back in 1999, with hit films like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ and ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, Shah Rukh became the new heartthrob of the industry. Sachin, on the other hand, was not far behind in his field. Hence the combination of the two legends surely got surely got the ball rolling for Pepsi.

It is one of those advertisements which comes with a dose of nostalgia.

‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’, a docu-feature, has been directed by London-based writer-filmmaker James Erkine. The film will release on May 26.
