The entire country is mourning the death of Milkha Singh, a great athlete k, popularly known as Flying Sikh. He breathed his last in Chandigarh at 11.30 pm on Friday after battling Covid-19 for nearly a month.
Many celebrities have been expressing grief on social media over his demise. Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar had a special relationship with Milkha Singh. Farhan brought his life to the screen with his film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Farhan Akhtar had worked very hard to play the role of Milkha Singh. The film was well-received by the audience and they loved the film. Farhan says that it is not easy for him to believe that Milkha Singh is no more.
Farhan posted a picture with Milkha Singh and wrote, “Dear Milkhaji, A part of me is still refusing to accept that you are no more. Maybe it’s the stubborn side I inherited from you.. the side that when it sets it’s mind on something, just never gives up. And the truth is that you will always be alive. Because you were more than a large hearted, loving, warm, down to earth man. You represented an idea. You represented a dream. You represented (to use you own words) how hard work, honesty and determination can lift a person off his knees and get him to touch the sky. You have touched all our lives.”
