It looks like Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is keen to use his connections to promote his upcoming film, a biopic on legendary athlete Milkha Singh. The filmmaker has apparently roped in Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan to shoot a special video as part of the film’s marketing strategy.
A source says, “Rakeysh is leaving no stone unturned to create a buzz about his film. Now he has not one but two superstars to promote the biopic. A special video will be made of Big B and SRK talking about sports.”
While Shah Rukh has been a hockey and football player during his college days, Bachchan is a very close friend of the director.
