Bhaag A 2013 Hindi-language biographical sports drama film titled Milkha Bhaag was directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and written by Prasoon Joshi. The narrative is based on the life of Milkha Singh, an Olympian from India who won the 400-meter race twice at the Asian Games and twice at the Commonwealth Games. In addition to Sonam Kapoor, Divya Dutta, Meesha Shafi, Pavan Malhotra, Yograj Singh, Dalip Tahil, Art Malik, and Prakash Raj, it also has Farhan Akhtar in the lead role.
In Rome in 1960, Milkha Singh is racing in the 400-meter race when the movie opens. When Singh's coach exclaims 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!' he is abruptly sent back to the haunting memories of his youth and falls to fourth place. He recalls the commotion that surrounded India's 1947 Partition, which led to widespread religious bloodshed in Punjab and the murder of Singh's parents. In a flashback, Singh is seen travelling by himself to Delhi, where he meets his sister later. Milkha finds friends in the poor refugee camps where she lives and steals with them to get by. He falls in love with Biro as an adult, who advises him to lead an honest life.
Milkha quickly enlists in the military. A havaldar notices his sprinting prowess after he wins a race where the top 10 finishers receive milk, two eggs, and a day off from fatigue duty. He is displeased to be chosen for the service commission. Singh is beaten up by experienced players that he had previously vanquished the day before the Indian Olympic squad is chosen. He runs in the race even though he is hurt, pushing through the discomfort to win and set a new record. With pride in his accomplishment, Milkha returns to Delhi to propose to Biro. His friend tells him that Biro got married and departed Delhi, though.
During the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Singh develops feelings for Stella, the granddaughter of his Australian coach. They have a one-night stand after spending the night in a bar. He is worn out from the previous night's escapades the next day, and he comes in last in the race. Realizing his error, he even smacks himself in front of the mirror out of guilt. He asks his coach what the 400-meter world record is on the way back to India, and he discovers that it is 45.9 seconds. In a montage, Milkha Singh pushes himself to the point of complete exhaustion while practising with tyres in the frigid Himalayan desert. He then competes in the 1958 Asian Games with the intention of bringing home a gold medal for India.
The 'Fastest Man of Asia,' Abdul Khaliq, then appears in front of him. Milkha Singh approaches Abdul to congratulate the winner after he wins his race. The Pakistani coach and his player, however, avoid and despise him. However, he easily defeats Khaliq in the 200 metres by a wide margin. In the 400-meter race at the Commonwealth Games, he wins another gold medal and is dubbed 'The King of England' by media outlets. He burns the paper on which the timing of 45.9 seconds was recorded, suggesting that he was prepared to break the 400m world record, after celebrating his triumph with his army teammates. By shattering the 400-meter world record, he finally realises his lifelong desire.
Due to the anguish of having to leave his home in the newly founded Pakistan as a boy, Singh fiercely declines Jawaharlal Nehru's invitation to lead the Indian team in Pakistan for a friendly race against Abdul Khaliq. Singh is reluctant to travel, but the prime minister eventually persuades him to go. When Singh arrives in Pakistan, he is late for the press conference and returns to his village instead, where a flashback depicts how his parents were killed and his father's last words were 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!' He begins to cry and is consoled by a boy who turns out to be Sampreet, a friend from his youth. Then he runs upon Sampreet, who obviously made it through the turmoil of the partition.
Khaliq is initially in the lead in the games, but Singh eventually overtakes his rivals one by one to seize the lead. General Ayub Khan, the president of Pakistan, bestows the moniker 'The Flying Sikh' to Singh after noticing how effortlessly he overtook the Pakistani athlete and won by a massive margin. As requested by Singh himself, Jawaharlal Nehru proclaims a day as a national holiday in honour of Milkha. In his closing scene, Milkha Singh is shown taking a victory lap while everyone in the stadium watches in awe of what he has accomplished. The end of the movie shows him sprinting with his younger self.
