The film has Farhan Akhtar playing Milkha Singh, the former Indian athlete and sprinter who won two gold medals for India at 1958 Asian Games, and a gold at Cardiff Commonwealth Games the same year. Sonam Kapoor plays Nirmal Kaur, the captain of Indian Women Volleyball team whom Milkha eventually goes on to marry.
But it’s the presence of the Australian beauty Rebecca Breeds that has tickled our interest. Rebecca, who has been a part of the Australian TV soap opera Home and Away, seems to be playing a small but pivotal role in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
In one scene from the song promo below, we spot Farhan Akhtar and Rebecca Breeds kissing on a beach. We want to keep guesses under check, but she ostensibly plays a sportsperson our hero has a dalliance with during one of the tournaments abroad.
