“I’m not a body builder. This (the body) was perfect for the role (in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag) and that’s why I thought I should do it. But every role has its demands and it is important to understand that you don’t want to look the same in every film,” the 39-year-old said.

“I try to mould as much as I can. It felt great to be fit and healthy and if there is something which demands me to to do it again, I would gladly do it. But I don’t feel it’s important to hang on to this, it was for a purpose,” he added.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, narrates the journey of former athlete Milkha Singh. Farhan who plays the ‘Flying Sikh’ in the movie has earned rave reviews for his performance.
