Toofaan, is an upcoming sports drama film that is being presented by Amazon Prime Video in association with Excel Entertainment. Farhan Akhtar will be seen in a lead role as a local goon first in the film, who embarks on the journey of becoming a national level boxer.
Unravelling his real struggle behind the strenuous training that went into looking the look of a boxer and portraying one, Farhan Akhtar took to his social media to share, “I hated drills.🤫 To wake up at 5am and think about that monster of a drill session waiting for me was, at times, good enough reason to make some random excuse and just stay in bed..!! But @drewnealpt got me to respect the discipline and with time I realised how much it helped in evolving my overall skills as a boxer. To quote the legendary Cus D’amato “Discipline is doing what you hate but doing it like you love it.” I guess that’s the mantra for improvement in any aspect of life, right? Thank you for the valuable lesson @drewnealpt @samir_jaura @darrellfoster #ToofaanUthega #21stMay #ToofaanOnPrime”
Standing more than a month away from the release, Farhan posts a picture on his social media when he is ready to pack a punch. He captioned it, “Come on April.. you’re not fooling me..!! #ToofaanUthega #ToofaanOnPrime #21stMay”
