A Re 1 currency note printed in 1958 was the charge Milkha Singh taken to let Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra base his next movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag on the Flying Sikh.
The life story of famous runner Milkha Singh is among the most inspiring stories from India. And incidentally, Milkha demanded only Re 1 to let Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra base his next film.
Our sources claim that in return Mr Mehra went an extra mile to source a special Re 1 currency note that was printed in 1958. The year was when the Flying Sikh got back awards from both Commonwealth and the Asian Games.
A source claims, “Milkhaji wasn’t serious about money. All he wanted was that Rakeyshji should make the movie.”
