Farhan Akhtar starrer Bhag Milkha Bhag will be promoted in a different and unique style. The spectators will have to sign the National Anthem with some of biggest names in the Indian Sports segment.
This unique promotional strategy has been designed for arising patriotic sentiments as the film Bhag Milkha Bhag is about Indian sports.
The makers of the film have shot a video with eminent Indian sports personalities singing the national anthem.
Reliable film sources say, “Since the biopic tells the real-life story of a hero (Milkha Singh) who fights against the odds, the makers believe it is something that needs to be saluted. That’s how the idea of a National Anthem video featuring him and 12 contemporary sportspersons came about.”
Sports stars such as tennis player Sania Mirza, weight lifter Geeta Rani, cricketer MS Dhoni, retired hockey player Dhanraj Pillay, chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand and Formula 1 racer Narain Karthikeyan, shuttler Saina Nehwal, shooter Abhinav Bindra, boxer Vijender Singh, wrestler Sushil Kumar, footballer Baichung Bhutia,etc. will be seen in the video.
The director of Bhag Milkha Bhag Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, said, “It’s yet to be decided whether the players will sing the National Anthem, or if playback singers will be roped in.”
