In the recent years, Bollywood has witnessed many biopics bringing the real-life heroes on screen played by reel-life heroes. One such biopic was 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' which immortalised India's legend Milkha Singh.

In the biopic, Farhan Akhtar played the role of India's flying Sikh beautifully. But it seems like he played the role so well that some people at the Noida Stadium believe that Farhan AKhtar is Milkha Singh himself.

In a tweet, Anisha Dutta shared a picture showing that Akhtar's picture has been put up beside a running track at the Noida Stadium.

Dutta wrote on Twitter, "Would request @noida_authority to replace these boards along the running track at Noida Stadium with the picture of the real Milkha Singh and not Farhan Akhtar's character in the movie."

The tweet has made a lot of people laugh out loud on Twitter at the blunder. However, many are angry at the the authorities for ridiculing Milkha Singh's legacy like this.

Speaking of one more such disaster, a person wrote in comments, "When Mandela died, some guys had placed poster of Morgan Freeman in condolence meeting in Tamilnadu."

Another person wrote, "I am guessing this is the crazy power of SEO. Someone searched for a pic of Milkha Singh and got this image and used it. At the same shows ignorance of the chain of command that approved this. Without doubt must be changed."

Here's how others are reacting to the tweet. Have a look.
