Mumbai: ‘Making of the Legend’, a short film showcasing actor Farhan Akhtar`s journey to becoming onscreen Milkha Singh for the forthcoming movie ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, is available online.

The video, released by Sony Music Tuesday, can be viewed on video-sharing website YouTube.

"Making of the Legend" showcases the training and physical work that the actor underwent to achieve an athletic body similar to what `Flying Sikh` Milkha Singh, a former ace athlete, had during his championship days.

"Six months of training, four to five hours, over two sessions six days a week got me to be like this," Farhan said in a statement.

‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, releasing Friday, is Sony Music`s second project with director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Composed by the leading musical trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy with lyrics by Prasoon Joshi, the music of the film was released in May.
