Entrepreneur Deepak Kuntawala says, "DVK is at the forefront of championing, nurturing and bringing to global recognition a variety of unique entertainment projects. We started our innings by bringing the critically-acclaimed show 'An Evening with Pacino' to the London stage, and now we continue to reach great heights in the entertainment arena by being the international partner for the incredible film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag."

Singh himself has watched the movie, and found it so close to the truth, he was moved to tears. "I became very emotional after watching certain scenes as they reminded me of my days of struggle. The film brought alive memories of the Partition when I did not have a job or enough food. I burst into tears to see my initial days unfold on the big screen," the 82-year-old sportsman said over phone.
