Trivia

When the Pakistan race was going on and Milkha Singh won, General Ayub Khan has requested Milkha Singh to continue his running so everyone can see him, and many Pakistani women raised their Burkhas to see him. See more »

Goofs

In the movie it was shown that Sonam Kapoor lives near Shahdara (New Delhi) as suggested by signboards on Police Station and school. When Milkha was carrying water for Sonam he used to pass through a Railway Station. The real twist is that in the background you can see that the name of station is Rewari (Haryana) which is around 100 Kms from Shahdara. See more »

Farhan Akhtar, an epitome of extreme dedication towards the character
12 July 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I would certainly be disappointed if this movie doesn't get nominated for the best foreign language film in the academy awards. Farhan Akhtar is like the epitome of dedication towards Milkha Singh's character. He was running like a pro. Cinematography was just amazing. Many shots were just breathtaking. Direction was just perfect and the casting was sensibly done. Parallel storytelling kept the movie balanced between Milkha Singh's life and his sports career. The trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy did their job as always.

But one of all, Farhan Akhtar rocked. He has always given his best in every field he has ever stepped in to. Respect for Farhan Akhtar, respect for Milkha Singh, the true hero.
