Bhaag Milkha Bhaag : Release Date, Trailer, Cast & Songs

About Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

The film begins during the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome, where Milkha Singh (Farhan Akhtar) competes in the 400-meter dash. "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!" screams a coach. ('Run, Milkha, run!'), and Singh is instantly transported back to childhood memories that haunt him, plummeting him to fourth place. His memories are of the upheaval that surrounded India's 1947 partition, which resulted in religious bloodshed in Punjab and the murder of Singh's parents. Now that he is an adult, he falls in love with Biro (Sonam K Ahuja), who asks him to live an honest life.

When he competes at the Commonwealth Games, he wins another gold medal in the 400m and is dubbed "The King of England" by numerous newspapers. He eventually fulfills a lifelong ambition by breaking the 400m world record.

Invited by India's prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru (Dalip Tahil), to head the Indian squad in a friendly race against Abdul Khaliq, Singh flatly refuses to go owing to the trauma of fleeing his home in newly-formed Pakistan as a boy. 

Initially, Khaliq is winning the games, but Singh gains the lead after overtaking opponents one by one. Impressed by how effortlessly Singh passed the Pakistani athlete and won by such a large margin, Pakistan's president, General Ayub Khan, bestows the moniker "The Flying Sikh" on him. As asked by Singh, Jawaharlal Nehru designates a day in his honor as a national holiday.
