Then, at that point we at long last wound up sourcing an uncommon Rs 1 cash note that was imprinted in 1958,” Rajiv Tandon, President, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures Pvt. Ltd, had said in an explanation.

The unbelievable competitor needed that his biopic ought to be made so that it roused more young people to acquire decorations in sports. Singh had likewise embedded a provision in the venture, expressing that a portion of the benefits would be given to the Milkha Singh Magnanimous Trust, established in 2003 fully intent on aiding poor and destitute sportspeople. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag was perhaps the greatest blockbuster of 2013 and earned recognition from pundits and crowds the same.
