Making a film based on a real person isn't a cakewalk. And filmmaker Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra will agree to it well.


The director, who is making a biopic on an Indian athlete, has worked on BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG script for one and a half years before it went on floors. Milkha has been at every stage of the film and wanted the best for the project. Former athlete wants his biopic to match the standards of THE JESSE OWENS STORY, a Telefilm that was based on the African-American sprinter

A source says, ''Milkha Singh hardly watches movies and has seen a handful of movies in his life. But one of his favourite films is THE JESSE OWENS STORY (TJQS, Telefilm, 1984). He feels the way the life of Jesse Owens has been depicted in the film has set a standard for films about sports-persons. He wanted it to be the benchmark for his own biopic.''

Owens was one of the first African-Americans to run in the Olympics. When contacted, Milkha says, ''Yes. THE JESSIE OWENS STORY is my favourite sports film. It's a great film to watch.''

BMB stars Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor. It has been shot in Firozabad and Ladakh.
