Farhan Akhtar is all set to essay a role of a boxer, for his upcoming movie ‘Toofaan’. The much-awaited sports drama has been the talk of the town, ever since the release of the trailer. Recently, the actor shared a video of himself, training like a beast, to fit in the character of the boxer. In the caption, he wrote “Just like a tree can only withstand a storm if it has strong roots, no boxer ever won fighting on weak legs. @samir_jaura racking it up and keeping it there. #ToofaanUthega #21stMay”
In the video, Farhan can be seen breaking a sweat, doing an intense regime of leg workout, and pushing himself to complete it. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, ‘Toofaan’ marks the second collaboration for Akhtar and Mehra, who previously brought Milkha Singh’s life story to the big screen in the 2013 biopic ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.
‘Toofaan’ is bankrolled by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar. The movie features an ensemble cast with Farhan in the lead alongside Mrunal Thakur, Paresh Rawal, Supriya Pathak Kapur and Hussain Dalal.
