The trailer of Farhan Akhtar starrer Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is out and trust me, the film looks promising. Look at Farhan Akhtar, the way he has worked on his looks. Don’t miss the 53rd second of the clip. I think, Bollywood has found another perfectionist after Aamir Khan.
The film is a biopic on veteran Indian athlete Milkha Singh, his perseverance as an athlete, and his courageous human spirit. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Delhi-6’ fame), BMB also sees Sonam Kapoor.
Better known as ‘The Flying Sikh’, athlete Milkha Singh represented India in 1960 Summer Olympics, Rome and 1964 Summer Olympics, Tokyo. What’s interesting is that, Milkha Singh is said to have sold the story for just one rupee. The films profits will be used for the benefit of the athletes in need.
So why the title, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag?
Well, these are the last words spoken by Milkha’s father, to save his life from the riots during partition of India. Milkha lost his family members during the partition.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is scheduled to release on 12 July, 2013.
