Moved By 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', Carl Lewis Calls Up Milkha Singh

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag seems to have moved not only Indians, but also international athletes and one such sportsman is former American track and field star Carl Lewis.

Buzz has it that Lewis got so emotional after watching the biopic that he tracked down Milkha Singh's telephone number and called him up to convey his appreciation. Confirming the news, Mehra said that the film team had never imagined that the impact of the film would be so widespread.

Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag starred Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor, Divya Dutta, Pavan Malhotra, Yograj Singh and other actors.
