Farhan Akhtar's performance in BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG has set a milestone. The actor, who underwent rigourous training for a year and half to get the right body for Milkha Singh's role, has been appreciated and honored in all forms for his outstanding act in the film, so much so that this year, the actor has swept all the awards in the Best Actor category.
Recently at the IIFA, the actor was overwhelmed to receive the award for Best Actor from the hands of the legend himself, Milkha Singh, while the entire house gave him a standing ovation.
This time around, Farhan got very emotional when he received the Dada Saheb Phalke Ratna Award which is considered India's highest award in cinema given annually by the Government of India for the contribution to Indian cinema. The Award is given to a prominent personality from the Indian film industry, noted and respected for significant contributions to Indian cinema.
