Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is taking lots of efforts for his upcoming biopic 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' which is based on the life of flying Sikh Milkha Singh. Even, Farhan Akhtar who is essaying the title role in this film has endured himself hard for the same. Now, to leave no stone unturned to make the film as perfect as possible, Rakeysh has requested the real Jawans to appear in the film.
Now, a batch of 46 Jawans will make their acting debut with 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'. Rakeysh wanted to shoot his film on real locations with the actual soldiers to appear it more real. Hence, the auditions were held for Jawans and 46 Jawans were selected to play the role of Farhan Akhtar's colleagues in this movie. All of these Jawans will appear in the song 'Maston Ka Jhund'.
According to the sources, the Indian Army has gone out of the way to support the film. The Army made the crew of the film comfortable at the real locations and supported the 46 Jawans to act in the movie. The Army did not give the postings to those 46 Jawans until they finished with the shoot of the movie.
