As a part of a unique promotional strategy, the makers of 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' (BMB) will shoot a special video for the film where biggest names in Indian sports will be seen sharing the screen space. Starring Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor in lead, the film is the biopic on Indian Olympic sprinter Milkha Singh and keeping this fact in mind, the makers thought of this idea - to make these sports celebrities to sing National Anthem.

"Since the biopic tells the real-life story of a hero (Milkha Singh) who fights against the odds, the makers believe it is something that needs to be saluted. That's how the idea of a National Anthem video featuring him and 12 contemporary sportspersons came about," said an insider close to the production house. Golfer Jeev Milkha Singh is already on board. The others being approached include Indian.

Cricket captain MS Dhoni, shuttler Saina Nehwal, shooter Abhinav Bindra, footballer Baichung Bhutia, boxer Vijender Singh, wrestler Sushil Kumar, tennis player Sania Mirza, weight lifter Geeta Rani, retired hockey player Dhanraj Pillay, chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand and Formula 1 racer Narain Karthikeyan."At present, there are several versions of the National Anthem being played at different multiplexes. From July, they will all feature this new video."

This video will reportedly be shot by filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (director of BMB). "It's yet to be decided whether the players will sing the National Anthem, or if playback singers will be roped in," added the source. On being contacted, an official spokesperson from BMB confirmed

'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' will hit screens on July 12.
