Glaring Mistake In West Bengal Text Book, Farhan Akthar’s Photo Instead of Milkha Singh

There is one “glaring mistake” in a West Bengal school textbook. Instead of using the picture of the “Flying Sikh” Milkha Singh, the picture of Farhan Akthar – the actor who played Milkha Singh in the 2013 biopic “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” is used.

After getting to know about this, Actor, Producer and Director Farhan Akthar tweeted to the Minister of Education in West Bengal. He pointed the error and asked whether the book could be republished.

Leader of the ruling Trinamool Congress Party, Derek O’Brien was quick to respond. He said he would immediately look into it.
