Farhan Akhtar with Milkha Singh

MUMBAI: The title Bhaag Milkha Bhaag just got a new relevance. Not only is the veteran sprinter Milkha Singh the subject of a new film to be directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and featuring Farhan Akhtar as Milkha, Milkha Singh’s son, a golf champion, might tie up with Madhavan for a film based on the game of golf.

Madhavan is a state-level golf champ with innumerable championship trophies to his credit. Last  month he teamed up with golf champ Jeev Milkha Singh for a Celebrity Challenge Match in Dubai. The duo went on to win the championship match.

When contacted Madhavan said, “I’m definitely keen on doing a film with golf as its main theme, like the Kevin Costner film Tin Cup. It won’t be just about the game because that wouldn’t interest that many people. We’re working on a subject that weaves golf into into a more generic plot.”

Would Maddy’s sizzling Jodi Breakers co-star Bipasha Basu be on for the golf film?

Says Madhavan, “I’d love to have her on board. She’s one of the coolest co-stars I’ve worked with and also the hottest. We got along like a house on fire during the making of Jodi Breakers. She’s like a buddy. A real pal and when she says I’m good husband material she makes me  feel like a responsible dependable human being. We’re definitely doing another film together.”

Prod him if she’s going to be paired with him in the golf film and Maddy shoots back, “Why not? Bipasha is  very sporty. An outdoor sporty film would suit her just fine.”
