After Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Farhan Akhtar has again come up with a unique performance by playing a flying Sikh in 'Bhag Milkha Bhag'. The trailer has raised the curiosity level among the audiences, even though the film is scheduled to release in July next year.
FARHAN AKHTAR is looking every bit of a Sikh Punjabi runner with his long hair tied up on his head; beard and mustache and a lithe body. The trailer of the film Bhag Milkha Bhag, which would release in July 2013, has intrigued many fans of Farhan Akhtar aka Milkha Singh, who have already made up their mind to visit the theatre once the film is released.
The film, as the name suggests, is based on the real life Flying Sikh, Milkha Singh and contrary to what many believe, is not about a sport. The director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra said, “Bhag Milkha Bhag is not about any particular sport, trophies or medals, but it is about the fire that Milkha Singh had. I just want to spread this fire across the world
and want people to learn from it. Milkha Singh’s life was full of troubles and hiccups but despite all this, he came out a winner. I think it is really necessary to take this meaningful story to the masses.”
The film starring Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor had already impressed many of the B-Town celebrities, who took to Twitter to congratulate the actors and the director for their efforts. Shahrukh Khan was prompt to tweet, “@FarOutAkhtar awesome....” Mostly everyone talked about the appearance of Farhan Akhatar and his transformation from a suave, sophisticated character to a completely different person.
Farhan Akhtar told NNIS, “It was definitely a challenge but I mean a challenge that was very exciting to accept. I learnt Punjabi in bits and pieces, mainly quoted dialogue and improvised on that. Of course I had to know the language as we know he has a very strong Punjabi influence.”
