Amitabh Bachchan remembers late Milkha Singh and calls him an ‘inspiration’

The actor posted the last page from Milkha Singh's autobiography, titled, “The Race of My Life: An Autobiography” on Twitter. The page read, "My final words would be: life as a sportsperson is hard, and there will certainly be times when you might be tempted to quit, or take shortcuts-- but remember there are no shortcuts to success. At such times you should try and derive inspiration from this Urdu couplet: "Mita de apni hasti ko agar koi martaba chahe, ki dana khak mein mil kar gul-gulzar hota hai.”

Amitabh Bachchan’s note read, “The last page of Milkha Singh's book .. An inspiration for all.”

Legendary Indian athlete Milkha Singh and his wife Nirmal Saini scummed due to COVID-19. Nirmal Saini passed away on 13 June, following "Flying Sikh," breathed his last in a Chandigarh hospital late on Friday.

On the professional front, Amitabh Bachchan is gearing up for Chehre, co-starring Emraan Hashmi. He will feature in Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. He also has MayDay, Jhund, Nag Ashwin’s next and The Intern remake.
