In 2013, the biopic of athlete Milkha Singh swept all the awards, with Farhan Akhtar being lauded in the role. However, director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has spoken about Ranveer Singh�۪s audition for the film.
���Farhan came as an instinctive choice. His age was wrong- Farhan was 36, Milkha was 22. But I felt out of all the auditions I had seen he was the best. There were three people who stood out- one was a new actor called Nitish, one was Ranveer Singh, who was quite crazy and then Farhan,� said Mehra, according to Deccan Chronicle.
He spoke about why he chose Akhtar, ���For me Farhan worked the best because his response was silent. I could see it in his eyes. That was it. That was enough for me�.
