A film was released 10 years ago ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’. This movie broke all the box office records. Farhan Akhtar was in the lead role in this. The film was directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Divya Dutta also played an important role in this. She became Isri Kaur, the elder sister of Milkha Singh. But do you know that at first Divya refused to do this film.

In an interview to Pinkvilla, Divya Dutta shared how she was not keen on playing Farhan Akhtar’s sister in the film. She said, ‘I was not doing this because I had a huge crush on Farhan at that time. I said, ‘Why should I play his sister?’ Rakesh said but you are an actress, you are professional. I said, ‘Yeah but… you know….’
