Come July, and every multiplex shall be featuring the National Anthem sung by some of the biggest influencers in Indian Sports. This video, shot by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is part of the promotional strategy for ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, and the filmmakers deem it a fit salutation to the biopic of Milkha Singh- the Flying Sikh who fought against all odds. The film starring Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor, is slated to release on July 12.
