Exciting challenge to play Milkha Singh: Farhan Akhtar
Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says playing sprinter Milkha Singh in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' has been an exciting challenge
'It was definitely a challenge, but it was a challenge that was a very exciting one to accept,' the 38-year-old said here in an interview. The biopic is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
Asked if he had to learn Punjabi for his character, Farhan said: 'In bits and pieces. I mainly focussed on dialogues and certain improvisations within scenes. But of course I had to, because there is a very distinct Punjabi flavour to the whole film.' 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' also features Sonam Kapoor, and is slated to release July 12.
