Everyone’s loved Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and the movie’s become one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year 2013. But the movie failed to impress Naseeruddin Shah who, in a recent interview was found talking about how he found it very fake! Naseeruddin also said that just because Farhan built muscles and all that, it doesn’t mean that he’s done a good job.
Here’s exactly what Naseeruddin Shah said about Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, “It’s a completely fake film. Farhan (Akhtar) has no doubt worked very hard but building up muscles and growing your hair is not exactly working hard on your acting. At least he should have tried to look like Milkha. Milkha is mighty pleased by him and he imagines that this was his life, he imagined he looked like that. Doesn’t he have photographs of himself from 1960s Olympics?”
Hmm..now we can’t entirely disagree with that but probably because we didn’t really know that much about Milkha Singh, we didn’t really have that much to complain about.
Naseeruddin Shah says that Farhan looks more like Rocky than like Milkha Singh. In his words, “Farhan was made to look like Rocky and not Milkha”. ”All the girls screamed for him when he appeared and so on which is lovely. He looked terrific but he did not look like Milkha. It’s was just too fake a film. Yes it was very beautifully shot which makes it technically an excellent film.”
