Milkha Singh moves to tears at London premier of `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`

New York: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the director of `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`, has revealed that Milkha Singh broke down twice during the screening of the film in London.

The movie talks about the life of the ‘Flying Sikh’, as Singh was known, from troubled childhood during the partition of India to his record-breaking races in the `50s and `60s.

During the London premiere last week, Mehra claimed that it is difficult to understand what you would feel emotionally when you see your own life unfold, but the legendary Indian track star did hold his hand twice during the screening, the New York Daily News reported.

He said that his main concern regarding the film was not about its box office collection but about doing justice to Singh.
