Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra says the biggest part of his success with "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" was that the movie managed to have a connect with children as young as six and eight.

Present at the FICCI Frames 2014 here Wednesday, Mehra and his "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" lead actor Farhan Akhtar discussed their views on the topic - "From Real-life Heroes to Reel-life Heroes: Biopics Inspiring Generations".

"Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" is a biopic on former Indian athlete Milkha Singh. The movie managed to get a warm response from critics and audiences alike.

Talking about it, Mehra said: "If I have to talk about my success, I feel my biggest success was when we got calls from many schools in India to take the school kids for the morning show of my film on low profit rate.

"It's great when six to eight year old kids get connected to your film...it's something that I had not even dreamt. Kids have the knack of sensing things...it's amazing," Mehra told reporters here.

The invigorating session saw a discussion on the creation of the inspiring biopic.

Farhan, who was immensely appreciated for his portrayal of the Flying Sikh, says his biggest challenge was to connect with the emotions.

"Of course there was a physical challenge, but I also had to worry about the emotions. There was a certain body language and command which I had to adapt to become that person," he said.
