Apparently actor shares an uncanny resemblance to Milkha's ex-girlfriend, who had first inspired him to become an athlete.

A few minutes into the film, he realised that Sonam looks a lot like his former girlfriend. Her character too, he felt, was well-etched,'' says a source. ''He is glad that Sonam has been cast in the role of the female lead opposite Farhan Akhtar (who plays Milkha in the movie). That is why he wants to meet her.''

Milkha is very happy with the way the film is shaping up. The source says, ''He is delighted with whatever little he has watched of the film. He thinks Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (director) has done justice to his life story by depicting it in a manner that's so close to reality.''

Farhan, who plays the lead has undergone a complete transformation physically to look like the icon & has already begun receiving positive reviews for his effort. ''Milkha knows that Farhan had to put in two years of extensive training to achieve the muscular-yet-lean physique. He has even grown his hair to resemble the athelete, and Milkha appreciated that about Farhan,'' reveals the source.
