With Farhan Akhtar racing ahead as legendary
Milkha Singh, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag entered the 100 crore
club and it looks like Akshay Kumar is feeling sad. Much before
Farhan was roped in for the role of the athlete in the movie, the
first choice of Rakesysh Omprakash Mehra was Akshay Kumar.
Things did not work out for Akshay Kumar to act in Bhaag
Milkha Bhaag so he turned down the offer and therefore missed
out on this golden opportunity. Luck was in favour for Farhan
Akhtar. However, we cannot say luck is the only factor because this
talented actor has put in a tremendous amount of hard work for this
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag which revolved around the life of
Milkha Singh was praised and loved by all in India and now it is
gone to the next level with the international release.
Although the athlete Milkha Singh reportedly wanted Akshay Kumar
to portray his role on screen, he was later extremely impressed by
Farhan's performance. After watching the movie of his own life,
Milkha Singh even shed tears. "He is exactly how I wanted to see
myself on screen. He has replicated me screen. He even resembles
me," said the Flying Sikh.
