Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s most ambitious project Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, starring Farhan Akhtar, is set to go on floors this month and athlete Milkha Singh, who is the inspiration behind the film, would be actively involved in recreating the key incidents of his life on-screen. The Olympian sprinter will be present on the location when those scenes will be shot. “Milkha Singh wants Rakeysh Mehra’s film to portray him as realistically as possible. He has told the team he will make himself available throughout the making of the film,” said a source close to the project.
And that’s not all. Milkha will also participate in a series of events being organised up till the release of the film. He is likely to be in Mumbai for a huge promotional event, where Farhan and Milkha will make a public appearance together.
