MUMBAI: Wow! India’s most famous athlete Flying Sikh Milkha Singh – on whose life the film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is based – hasn’t seen a film in 53 years.
Milkha says the last film he saw was the 1946 classic Anmol Ghadi which featured Suraiya and Noor Jehan. And now the film on his own life will be his first since then.
“He is very excited about watching the film when it releases this July. He wants to catch it with his family and close friends. Although his wife, son and daughter are movie buffs, Singh has been the complete opposite all his life. In over five decades, he hasn’t watched a film even on television,” Bollywood Hungama quoted a source close to the former athlete as saying.
