Athlete Milkha Singh has full faith that Farhan Akhtar will do justice to the role in the biopic, Bhag Milkha Bhag, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

Singh, 76, had given the film’s rights to Mehra, at the insistence of his son, golfer Jeev Milkha Singh for a princely sum of R1. “I want people to realise that if a man could achieve so much without any facilities, it is sad that after 60 years, no Indian athlete has come up to that level,” says Singh.
