'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' a challenging film: Farhan
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar promoted his forthcoming film 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' here over the weekend.
'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' is directed and produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, written by Leslie Claudius, and stars Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, among others.
'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' is a biographical film based on the former Indian athlete Milkha Singh, who was called the "Flying Sikh" by Pakistan's martial law administrator General Ayub Khan three years before the Indo-Pak war of 1965.
Talking to mediapersons, Akhtar said: "I am happy that I have got the opportunity to work in this film with the director, Rakeysh, it was a challenging film. In order to justify his role, we have made best possible efforts in the movie."
Reportedly, Milkha Singh has sold the story for just one rupee. The name of the movie comes from the last words spoken by his father, which was to save his life during the riots that followed the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947.
During the partition, Milkha lost his family, whereas the movie talks about his perseverance as an athlete and also as a courageous human spirit.
The music of the film has been composed by Bollywood trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
The film is slated for a worldwide release on July 12.
