46 Jawans To Make Their Acting Debut In 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'

In the upcoming Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, a batch of 46 jawans will be making their acting debut! The director wanted to shoot the film at a real location with actual soldiers and so, auditions were held to select jawans who would play Farhan Akhtar's companions in the film. All of them feature in a song titled Maston Ka Jhund. Sources reveal that the Indian Army went out of its way to make the film's crew comfortable, and that the 46 jawans were not given postings till they finished shooting.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which is based on the life of legendary sprinter Milkha Singh, also stars Sonam Kapoor. The film releases in July.
