Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says playing sprinter Milkha Singh in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' has been an exciting challenge

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.
