With a title like Sachin, a film doesn't need much publicity. And this is what producer Kalaipuli S Thanu, director Jhoan and actor Vijay want to capitalise on.

Other than enjoying life as a college student, Sachin also plays cricket. And there ends the similarity between Tendulkar and the fictional Sachin.
