Sonam Kapoor: 'Farhan Akhtar became Milkha Singh for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'

Sonam Kapoor is riding high on the success of her latest release Raanjhanaa, which has been declared a hit at the box-office and now the fashionista is looking forward to the release of her forthcoming film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The film is a biopic on India's star athlete Milkha Singh and actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar will play the main lead in the movie.

Sonam, it seems, is quite impressed by Farhan's work in the film and at a recent media interaction, the actress raved about her co-star saying, “What I learnt from him is dedication, hardwork. He became Milkha Singh, he became the character, I didn't see Farhan Akhtar when I was working with him. I have learnt from his madness, there was craziness to his hard work and that discipline in this day and age especially when there are so many things around you to falter you, he was so disciplined. He was just brilliant to watch.”

Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, BMB is slated to release on July 12, this year.
