Mumbai: Farhan Akhtar says playing sprinter Milkha Singh in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' has been an exciting challenge.

"It was definitely a challenge, but it was a challenge that was a very exciting one to accept," the 38-year-old said in an interview.

The biopic is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

Asked if he had to learn Punjabi for his character, Farhan said: "In bits and pieces. I mainly focussed on dialogues and certain improvisations within scenes. But of course I had to, because there is a very distinct Punjabi flavour to the whole film."

'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' also features Sonam Kapoor, and is slated to release on July 12, 2013.
