Filmmaker-actor Farhan Akhtar will soon be seen giving a chance to his fans to run along with him in a mini marathon which will be organized by him ahead of the release of his movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.
The 3km-5km marathon will be hosted in four cities – Delhi, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Jaipur.
The movie will be released on July 12. Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag will see Farhan as athlete Milkha Singh. The biopic is a co-production between Mehra and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
A spokesperson from Viacom 18 Motion Pictures said in a statement that,”The curiosity to see Farhan running a marathon is at its highest. He has been able to transcend boundaries and has become the Milkha Singh of celluloid.”
The actor went through rigorous physical training in order to get the perfect body like that of an athlete for this film and fans are eager to watch the actor run live.
A source said that, “Ever since the promotions started, everyone has been asking Farhan about the practice that went into playing the role of Milkha Singh. That’s why the makers have decided to give the audiences a chance to watch him run a marathon and participate with him.”
“Many school and college students will be running with Farhan. They were selected via contests held by the makers recently,” the source added.
The movie also features Sonam Kapoor.
