Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had a great 2013 as her films ‘Raanjhanaa’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ were both critical and commercial successes. As this biopic on the Flying Sikh Milkha Singh clocked eight years, the actress shared a post to thank Farhan Akhtar, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and the entire team. She wrote on her Instagram account- “Playing Biro has been possibly one of my most cherished experiences on a film set. A character that is extremely dear to not just my heart, but also Milkha Singh’s story. As Bhaag Milkha Bhaag completes 8 years today, my heart beats louder for Biro, her grace and her impact.”

Akhtar almost disappeared into the role of Singh in this sweeping biopic, creating a blend of intense emotions and impressive physicality.

Asserting that her craft means a lot to her, Kapoor is increasingly specific about the roles she takes on.

While she acknowledges that depiction of women on screen is improving, there’s still a long way to go for an equal industry. “The pay gap is ridiculous. I can stand up to it, but then I don’t get those roles, and I’m okay with that. I can afford to do that. I realised over the past two or three years that I have no right to judge anybody.”
