    MUMBAI: The courageous story of the “Flying Sikh”—India’s most successful ever track athlete, who overcame childhood tragedy to seek Olympic glory—is the latest Bollywood biopic to hit cinemas. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (Run, Milkha, Run) charts the journey of young Milkha Singh who lost his family during India’s tumultuous partition in 1947 and went on to compete at the 1960 and 1964 Olympic Games. Farhan Akhtar, who plays Milkha Singh in the new movie, said portraying a living person was a huge responsibility that required months of both physical and mental preparation.
