Farhan Akhtar who has not been seen on Bollywood big screen for a while now shared a poster of his new film on Twitter today. Actor and filmmaker, Akhtar, shared a poster of Toofan with the caption, "Toofan Uthega!! FIRST LOOK! #TOOFAN releasing 2nd October 2020!!." The actor can be seen throwing a punch in the air as he shows off his chiseled body.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed the film. Whose last film was Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, a hit back in 2013. However, Toofan follows the story of a fictional boxer and is not based on a biography unlike the director's last movie. Speaking about the film the director commented on its complexity. As it is rooted among the lower middle class. The director also spoke about how boxing is not a rich man's sport and thus gives in to a nice story.
Farhan himself has committed completely to the physical transformation needed to look like a boxer. The actor has been sharing pictures of himself over the past few months on the film's set.
The film is set to release on the 2nd October, 2020. Almost exactly an year from now.
