Actor Farhan Akhtar, who starred in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's sports biopic Bhaag Mikha Bhaag, said that if Milkha Singh wants to share more about his life then there may be a sequel to the film.
Cricketer MS Dhoni is reportedly co-producing his biopic which features actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the titular role. The film directed by Neeraj Pandey had earlier gone through a rough patch but now has set it sails. Sports biopics (and biopics in general) are in vogue in Bollywood. With the success of stories of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Mary Kom in mind, Bollywood is looking forward to the biopics of Kishore Kumar, Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam, among others.
Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar, who was highly praised by one and all for essaying the role of Milkha Singh's with great realism in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, has clarified that he is not a part of any biopic based on the life of Urdu poet and lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. Actress Kareena Kapoor was touted to play the role of author Amrita Pritam in the biopic.
After the success of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and a Mary Kom under production, get ready for Dara Singh to storm the screens with none other than Bollywood's international Khiladi in the lead role.
Priyanka Chopra said in a statement, "I'm working out with Samir for Mary Kom. It was Farhan who referred his name to me. He has worked with him during Rock On! and for Milkha Singh biopic."
Legendary athlete Milkha Singh on whose life Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra's upcoming film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is based, charged a Re 1 currency note printed in 1958 for the biopic featuring Farhan Akhtar.
