Farhan Akhtar took to Instagram to share stories of him completing 50% of the shoot for his upcoming film Toofan. Apart from Farhan, Mrunal Thakur, Paresh Rawal, and Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra were also present on the sets to celebrate.
The first cake read ‘Toofan’, the second read ‘Half-way 50%’, and the third read ‘Done.’ In the second story, we can see Farhan Akhtar along with Paresh Rawal, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, and Mrunal Thakur cutting the cakes together.
Farhan Akhtar will portray the role of a boxer named Alok Oberoi in Toofan while Paresh Rawal will be his coach Lambodar Sandhu. Mrunal Thakur will play Farhan's love interest in the film. Toofan also stars Rishi Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Rajpal Yadav, Yashpal Sharma, Darshan Kumaar, Vijay Raaz and Supriya Pathak.
Farhan is reuniting with his Bhaag Milkha Bhaag director for Toofan after six years. He played the role of former sprinter Milkha Singh in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and in Toofan, he has returned as a boxer.
This is the first time that we are seeing Farhan and Mrunal on the silver screen together. Mrunal was last seen in Hrithik Roshan's film Super 30, which released earlier this year.
Toofan is tentatively scheduled to release in October 2020.
