Athlete Milkha Singh says that he found it emotionally overwhelming to watch his childhood and life unfold on the big screen in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

Milkha watched the biopic on his life during its premiere in London. The film is directed by Raykesh Omprakash Mehra and stars Farhan Akhtar as the legendary athlete.

“I saw the film in London three days back... I cried in the second half and it was Farhan who handed over his handkerchief to me to wipe my tears,” Milkha said. “Today I am a happy man,” he added.
