Farhan Akhtar To Turn 'Marathon Man' For 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'

Actor Farhan Akhtar, who will be next seen playing the role of athlete Milkha Singh in upcoming biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, will be participating in marathons to promote his film, claim sources.

A source close to the production house reveals, “Ever since the promotions started, everyone has been asking Farhan about the practice that went into playing the role of Milkha Singh. That's why the makers have decided to give the audiences a chance to watch him run a marathon and participate with him. The mini marathon will comprise a 3-5 km long run. Many school and college students will be running with Farhan. They were selected via contests held by the makers recently.”

A spokesperson from Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, the co-producers of the movie, confirmed the news and said, “The curiosity to see Farhan running a marathon is at its highest. He has been able to transcend boundaries and has become the Milkha Singh of celluloid.”

The marathons will be conducted at Delhi, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Jaipur.
