Farhan Akhtar's Birthday Plans For Milkha Singh Cancelled

It had been reported that Farhan Akhtar was planning to throw a huge birthday bash for the legendary sprinter Milkha Singh today, on November 20. Akhtar is currently playing the role of the sprinter in the upcoming Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'.

 

However, sources claim that keeping the recent demise of the late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray in mind, all the plans have been cancelled. Farhan had specially invited the sprinter and his family to celebrate the occasion with him and his team. Even the film's first look was to be launched at a five-star hotel in the city today. However, the entire team felt that it would be inappropriate to celebrate Milkha's birthday or the launch of the first look at this time in Mumbai.
