MUMBAI: He may be getting entirely positive response for the ?biopic? he made on sprinter Milkha Singh?s life but filmmaker Rakeysh Omprkash Mehra believes that a film can?t be a biopic. He says that a film can always be an ?inspired by a true life piece? which he believes even Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is as it isn?t telling the story of Singh from starting to end. ?It?s rather telling the stories of his life that led him to become Milkha Singh,? said Mehra while talking during the session ? ?From Real Life Heroes to Reel Life Heroes: Biopics Inspiring Generations? on the first day of FICCI Frames 2014.

Also present at the session was Farhan Akhtar who has received rave reviews for his performance as Milkha Singh, while it was being anchored by CNN-IBN Entertainment Editor Rajeev Masand.

Mehra, when quizzed if filmmakers take certain liberties and tweak the life story while filming a biopic, he remarked: ?When you tell a story, you have your own interpretation. Like in BMB, we didn?t follow Singh?s life in chronological order rather we started the story from an incident that would transform his life.? Mehra believes that storytellers have to be ?morally? correct while telling stories.

While talking about the most important aspect of making a film on a person?s life, Farhan said that it is very important to come down to that one lesson of the person?s life from which the audiences can draw an inspiration. ?The writing is another important aspect,? says Farhan.

In the same vein, Mehra says that it?s the actors, especially the one playing the title role who can put across the story in the best possible way. ?It is important for the actors to get the feelings correct and the essence of the movie out,? he said.

Mehra, now wants to make a movie on the life of Guru Dutt and for the research he thinks that more than studying the life of the person, it is important to understand the situation in which that person lived and grew to become who he was. ?It?s very important to understand the time in which the person lived,? said Mehra, adding that he is even studying the life of Sahir Ludhianvi.
