We have been hearing little bits about Farhan Akhtar’s new starring role in the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and now we finally get to see a sneak peek into the film!
Directed by the talented Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the film also stars Sonam Kapoor. It tells the story of Milkha Singh also know as the Flying Sikh. Talking about the film, Mehra said, “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is not about any particular sport, trophies or medals, but it is about the fire that Milkha Singh had. I just want to spread this fire across the world and want people to learn from it.”
Apparently Singh sold his story for 1 rupee, he told IANS, “In the past, many filmmakers had offered me crores of rupees to sell them my story but it was really difficult for me to believe anybody. This time my son Jeev, who had seen Mehra’s ‘Rang De Basanti’, convinced me and said the film was in safe hands. Now I am very happy and I have charged only one rupee from them. I just want others to extract motivation out of the movie. They should believe in themselves: if a village boy like me can win laurels for the country with meagre resources and virtually no support, why can’t anyone else?” said Singh.
As Farhan said in his tweet on your mark…we now present the first look into Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!
Seems Farhan besides running has been doing some serious workouts…get ready to drool! On a more serious note, the film, with music by the great Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, is set to release next July! We can’t wait!
