Mumbai: Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, known for his directorials like `Rang De Basanti` and `Delhi 6`, confesses that his last release `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag` was one of the most challenging films that he had ever attempted.

For him, it was like going to school every morning.

`Bhaag Milkha...` was a biopic on the life of former athlete Milkha Singh, portrayed by actor Farhan Akhtar. Released July 5 this year, the film did a whopping business of over Rs.100 crore and also found acceptance from the audiences of all age groups and strata.

"It (working on `Bhaag Milkha..`) was like going to school every morning. It is very difficult to put it in words but I enjoyed every moment of it. We went out everyday to do our jobs and came back home thinking `did we do well or not?`," Mehra said here Tuesday at the DVD launch of the film.

"But in all, it was a hugely learning experience. It was one of the most challenging films which I had attempted and I am glad that it worked out," he added.

Mehra is now busy with his next project `Mirza Sahiba`, a musical which is based on a folkore set in Rajasthan.
