The singer-turned actress Amika Shail mourned the demise of her fitness inspiration – the Bharatiya sprint icon Milkha Singh, who expired on June 18 aged 91 after battling COVID-19 for a month.
Many Bollywood actors paid their tribute on various social media platforms to the ‘Flying Sikh’. Amika had met Milkha Singh at the event of the latter’s autobiography launch titled ‘The Race of My Life’. Commenting on the occasion Amika said “I was fortunate to meet Milkha Singh during his autobiography launch in 2013. He is one of Bharat’s most distinguished achievers. His fitness journey inspired me so much that I began mine.”
Milkha Singh’s legacy remains unmatched. His passing away is an end of an era in Bharatiya sports. “I will always remember him as an encouraging and enthusiastic person. It’s heart-breaking that we have lost a legend” said Amika as she concluded.
