On the other hand, Farhan is busy with the promotions of his movie. He was recently seen on a round table, he was asked if he had the chance to show or share anything related to the film to the legendary athlete Milkha Singh, who passed away recently because of COVID-19, what would it be, to which the actor replied with a heavy heart, “I showed him the first poster when it had come out. I shared with him everything that was possible at that point of time. None of us expected him to fall sick. None of us expected his wife to fall ill. All of it came as a major shock to all of us. I do feel sad,” Farhan said.
Talking further about the late athlete, reel life Milkha Singh said, “I think he would have been very proud if he would have watched this film. Honestly, he has instilled in me the value of working hard. He’s the core of my being. I have had the great fortune to have spent time with him and portray him in a film. But the impact that the man had on me, just in terms of opening up my mind to the fact that everything is possible only when you’re willing to work hard. That belief that everything is possible has come from him. He would have been proud at least for the belief he’s instilled. I do miss him.”
