In the superhit biopic ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, Farhan Akhtar played the role of India’s flying Sikh so well that some people at the Noida Stadium believe that Farhan Akhtar is Milkha Singh himself.
Picture of hoarding shared by a journalist named Anisha Dutta, shows the memory of Milkha Singh.
However, instead of his picture, they put the picture of Akhtar from the biopic.
Sharing the photo Anisha wrote, “Would request Noida Authority to replace these boards…with the picture of real Milkha Singh, not Farhan Akhtar’s character in the movie”.
In a response to Dutta’s tweet, the Chief Executive Officer, NOIDA Authority wrote, “Images were placed many years back; these have been removed today and will be repainted as per norms.”
Many social media users shared the picture and slammed the authority for the act.
“100% agree….to me it’s a shameful act by someone who used REEL actor picture on these hoardings. Who the hell is not aware of our REAL HERO -THE FLYING MACHINE Mr. MILKHA SINGH,” one user said.
Another user added, “India does not give tributes to legends like this.”
