Filmmaker-actor Farhan Akhtar has shared his first look, in the poster of Toofan. The poster reveals the Rock On actor in a punching pose, flaunting his impressive body inside a boxing ring.
Farhan Akhtar has been training for several months, for his role in Toofan. The actor underwent significant body transformation, and trained hard under some of the pioneers of the sport. The 45-year-old actor took to his social media accounts, to share his latest look with fans. He wrote, “Toofan Uthega!! FIRST LOOK! #TOOFAN releasing 2nd October 2020.” The film also stars Paresh Rawal in a pivotal role.
Although Toofan is also a sports drama, it is a fictional story in a very convincible setting. Talking about the film, the makers said to PTI, “Anjum Rajabali has written this very endearing love story of a boxer, it's not a real-life figure but a fictitious character. What I liked the most about it (the story) was that it has a new voice. It's set among the lower middle class. Boxing is not a rich man's sport, anywhere in the world."
Toofan is all set to hit the screens at Gandhi Jayanti next year, clashing directly with John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate 2 and the Vicky Kaushal-starrer Sardar Udham Singh.
