Farhan Akhtar leaves no stone unturned when it comes to impressing his fans with his songs, movies, or acting. He gets into the very soul of the character and makes the audience connect with his on-screen persona. Very soon we will get to see him in Toofaan, a sports drama movie whose teaser was released recently.
Toofaan is helmed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and we will get to see Farhan Akhtar play the role of a national-level boxer. This movie will take us through Farhan’s journey from being a lean boxer to an unfit man who has given up on his dreams, and finally, we will get to see him mold himself into a chiseled national-level boxer who is all set to achieve goals. To portray Farhan’s unfit phase, the makers initially tried to use prosthetics and VFX, but it didn’t give them satisfactory results. So ultimately the actor had to undergo a massive body transformation and in that process, he gained 15-20 kilos which left the director, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra super impressed.
The teaser created quite a buzz on social media and it looked very promising. The movie also stars Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in supporting roles and will release on Amazon Prime Video. I can’t wait to watch it!
