Mumbai: Farhan Akhtar`s performance in `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag` has been applauded by everyone, but a special moment of praise for him was when veteran actress Jaya Bachchan hugged him after watching the film.
"A moment that has stayed with me is when Jaya aunty saw the film and after she saw it, she gave me a really long hug," the 39-year-old said here Wednesday at the unveiling of the latest issue of Star Week magazine featuring him on the cover.
"Ever since I have been working, from `Dil Chahta Hai`, I have never seen her react like this to anything I have done. So that is really special," he added.
Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`, a biopic on ace athlete Milkha Singh, saw Farhan essay the title role.
