Farhan's going the distance!

By HT

Mumbai, July 8 -- Filmmakers these days are leaving no stone unturned to come up with unusual and innovative marketing strategies to promote their films. The latest we've heard is that Farhan Akhtar will go on a four-city tour and run a marathon in each of the places in a lead-up to his next release, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (BMB). The events will be held in Delhi, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Jaipur.

A source close to the production house reveals, "Ever since the promotions started, everyone has been asking Farhan about the practice that went into playing the role of Milkha Singh. That's why the makers have decided to give the audiences a chance to watch him run a marathon and participate with him."

The mini marathon will comprise a 3-5 km long run. "Many school and college students will be running with Farhan. They were selected via contests held by the makers recently."
