Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s latest film ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ is been a superhit at the Indian box-office. Indian viewers liked the movie irrespective of the movie’s run time. But a recent update reveals that the director has shortened the movie by 30 minutes before its international release.
Cutting down the film by 30 minutes was a difficult thing to do as every part of the movie carries it forward and gives sense to the movie. Even the songs are a crucial part of the film. But Rakeysh and editor PS Bharathi sat together and went through the entire footage to pick out some scenes which could be chopped.
When asked about the decision taken to reduce the length of the movie, Omprakash Mehra said that they have not forced editing into the movie. The director said that he wanted to kill the custom of ‘interval’ for his movie to release it internationally.
