As Bollywood is going gaga over Farhan Akhtar’s Milkha Singh act in the biopic, the south stars like Rajinikanth and Chiranjeevi have approached the makers expressing their wish to watch the film. The movie, which is the current flavour of the box office, is doing a good business. Also positive word of mouth and critical appreciation has worked in its favour.
The spokesperson of the film confirms to a daily, “Rajnikanth and Chiranjeevi both have reached out to us and expressed their wish to watch the film. We are overwhelmed with the fabulous response the film is getting.”
When Farhan Akhtar came to know that the legends like Rajnikanth and Chiranjeevi have conveyed their yearning to watch the film, he was very pleased, and humbled.
To look and act like Milkha Singh, Farhan Akhtar had to change his entire lifestyle. The transformation was a difficult process, and it was on every level -- emotional, mental as well as physical. Farhan grew his hair and beard even to portray a Sikh sprinter, and later confessed that he got used to the beard and the long hair. Now, all his hardwork is paying off!
According to the trade insiders, the three-hour-plus-long biopic is headed for major success. The trade expects Bhaag Milkha Bhaag to do a lifetime business of Rs 80-90 crores. The movie is even doing extremely well overseas.
