There were reports that Milkha Singh was disappointed after Mehra did not keep his promise of donating a certain amount of the movie profit to the athlete’s charity trust. Singh had reportedly sold the right to his biopic for Rs 1.
Mehra, however, says Singh was misquoted. “I read the story a few days back. Media likes to sensationalise. I can’t do anything about it. I spoke to Jeev (Milkha Singh’s son) about it… He said he is upset because Milkhaji was misquoted,” the director told PTI.
