Farhan Akhtar will soon be seen in the upcoming sports drama, Toofan in the role of a boxer. The film has created quite a storm ever since its teaser came out. Sharing a throwback video from 2 years ago when he had already started training for his role in the film, Farhan wrote, “Let’s start at the very beginning .. Throwback to March 2019 and still early days of training in the ring with @drewnealpt .. Drew pointed out that I’m still not relaxed in the shoulders and still not moving my feet to good effect.. I’m actually trying to not sit down in between sets (didn’t tell Drew that though) .. Work in progress with progress being the work 🏽 .. #ToofaanUthega #21stMay”
