Bengal textbook carries Farhan Akhtar photo for Milkha Singh

Are the portrayals of a character in any movie so strong that they overshadow the real figure? Something like this happened in Bengal when a textbook used the picture of Farhan Akhtar instead of Milkha Singh. Farhan Akhtar played the character of Milkha Singh in Rakesh Omprakash Mehra’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The textbook was supposed to put the image of Milkha Singh where it displayed the photo of Farhan Akhtar.

This goof-up came into light only when a Twitter user called ‘Lyfe Ghosh’ shared the picture on his twitter and wrote, “Image of @FarOutAkhtar is portrayed as milkha singh in west Bengal text book. not at all shocked. its became regular incident here.”

Following this, Farhan Akhtar also took to Twitter and requested the West Bengal education minister Partha Chatterjee to look into the matter. He wrote, “To the Minister of School Education, West Bengal. There is a glaring error with the image used in one of the school text books to depict Milkha Singh-ji. Could you please request the publisher to recall and replace this book? Sincerely.”

The actor also tagged Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien in his tweet, who responded that he is on it.
