Actor Farhan Akthar and his fans have been waiting for the release of his upcoming film Toofan which is all set to release on OTT giant Amazon Prime Video.
Toofan is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The film was slated for a release last year on October 2, 2020, but got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, the makers announced that Toofan will release on the OTT platform on May 21, 2021.
But now, they have stalled the release and have made it official that the film will not release on May 21. An official note says, “ The situation in India is truly heart-breaking, and we at Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures send our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the pandemic. In light of the severity of the situation, our focus is completely on the pandemic and on supporting our employees, their families, and helping the wider community. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the release of our film 'Toofan' until the situation improves. We will issue an update regarding the new release date in due course of time. Please continue to observe Covid Appropriate Behaviour. Also, please register and get vaccinated when it's your turn. On behalf of the entire team of Toofan, we urge you to stay Home, Stay Safe and Stay United. Jai Hind.” (sic)
