Farhan later shared the details of the event on social media. He wrote, “To celebrate a decade of Milkha ji’s story on film, a screening was held in Mumbai for people with hearing loss. The Indian Sign Language Organisation (ISL), Viacom 18 and Bharathi Mehra have worked for months and created a theatrical version of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag with sign language. Their effort is beyond exemplary. It was truly an overwhelming experience to be there and be part of this historic moment. Thank you to @pvrcinemas_official for supporting this and re-releasing the film with sign language in over 30 screens across the country.”
Farhan who played Milkha Singh’s role in the film had spent over a year to get the physique of the late sprinter. The film and his performance were appreciated so much that he bagged Best Actor award across all award shows that year.
The 2013 film also starred Japtej Singh, Sonam Kapoor, Yograj Singh, Rebecca Breeds, Art Malik and Pavan Malhotra.
