Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is a 2013 biographical sports drama film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra from a script written by Prasoon Joshi.
The story is based on the life of Milkha Singh, an Indian athlete who was a national champion runner and an Olympian. It stars Farhan Akhtar in the titular role with Sonam Kapoor, Divya Dutta, Meesha Shafi, Pavan Malhotra and Art Malik in supporting roles. Sports was coordinated by the American action director Rob Miller of ReelSports.
Singh and his daughter, Sonia Sanwalka, co-wrote his autobiography, titled The Race of My Life. The book inspired Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Singh sold the film rights for one rupee and inserted a clause stating that a share of the profits would be given to the Milkha Singh Charitable Trust. The Trust was founded in 2003 with the aim of assisting poor and needy sportspeople.
