Talk about authenticity... Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's next, 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' (BMB), will see a batch of 46 jawans making their Bollywood debut.
According to IndiaGlitz sources, Rakeysh wanted to shoot the film at a real location with real soldiers. For which in fact, auditions were held - among the jawans who were undergoing training - to select the jawans who would play Farhan Akhtar's companions. They will be introduced in a song titled "Maston Ka Jhund", which showcases the solidarity between the army men, who are being trained by a strict ustaad.
The Indian Army threw open its doors to the crew and provided all facilities. In fact, the 46 jawans were not even given postings till they finished shooting.
Also starring Sonam Kapoor in lead, BMB releases on 12th July.
