Sonam, 27, is said to have received many calls from her friends, when she changed the picture on her Blackberry Messenger to that of Farhan.
"After seeing Farhan as Milkha Singh, Sonam has been flooded with requests. All her friends have become fans of Farhan and they wanted to meet him," a source said.
Like a good friend, the actress introduced all of them to Farhan, who plays the role of athlete Milkha Singh in the movie.
"At least 32 people came on the sets and met Farhan. He spent time with all of them," said the source.
