Sonam reminds Milkha Singh of his first love

Sonam reminds Milkha Singh of his first love

Apparently the actor shares an uncanny resemblance with Milkha Singh’s ex-girlfriend, who had first inspired him to become an athlete.

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is inspired by the real life story of veteran athlete Milkha Singh. And when Milkha Singh recently saw some rushes of the film, he was left with a feeling of nostalgic. The reason behind it was Sonam Kapoor’s character in the film. Apparently the actor shares an uncanny resemblance with Milkha’s ex-girlfriend, who had first inspired him to become an athlete.

“A few minutes into the film, Milkha Singh realized that Sonam looks a lot like his former girlfriend. Her character too, he felt, was well-etched,” says a source. “He is glad that Sonam has been cast in the role of the female lead opposite Farhan Akhtar (who plays Milkha in the movie). That is why he wants to meet her.”

Milkha is very happy with the way the film is shaping up. The source says, “He is delighted with whatever little he has watched of the film. He thinks Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (director) has done justice to his life story by depicting it in a manner that’s so close to reality.”

Farhan, who plays the lead has undergone a complete transformation physically to look like the icon and has already begun receiving positive reviews for his effort. “Milkha knows that Farhan had to put in extensive training to achieve the muscular-yet-lean physique. He has even grown his hair to resemble the athelete, and Milkha appreciated that about him,” reveals the source.
