Farhan Akhtar has already proved his mettle when it comes to rigorous training and playing a sportsman in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Once again, Farhan is ready to wear the shoes of sportsman in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Toofan. He will be seen playing a boxer in the film. Talking about the film, director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had earlier said in an interview, “I am most excited for the film. I can’t talk much because we haven’t even started shooting. We are planning to go on the floors by the end of the year. Both Farhan and I are getting to work with each other after six years. We have always been bouncing ideas off each other,”However, the news about the rest of the star cast is yet unrevealed. Besides that, Farhan Akhtar took to his social media account and shared a clip where he can be seen practicing boxing with full energy. He captioned it, “It’s not just about the strength but speed as well #Toofaninthemaking.”
He further added, “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.”
