Farhan Akhtar is on cloud nine these days and he has every reason to be! The actor is getting praises from every corner of the country for portraying the role of 'The Flying Sikh', Milkha Singh so brilliantly. But Farhan says that the biggest compliment for him is that the audience loved Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a biopic on legendary sprinter Milkha Singh. Talking about the movie Farhan told at the success party of the film, "We are happy that people love this film. The biggest compliment is the acceptance of audience and Milkha Singh and his family."
It is said that Farhan Akhtar took training for 18 months to get a body like Milkha Singh. Not only this, the actor did not eat rice for six months. Farhan says that his mother and wife are very happy with his work and dedication. "My mother (Honey Irani) and wife (Adhuna) are feeling proud of me. It is nice to see this reaction as I was away from them and gave most of the time to this film."
