Speaking about collaborating with Farhan after the success of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ which released 7 years ago, Rakeysh said, “After working with Farhan in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, I was certain he would be the perfect protagonist for Toofaan.
The best thing about him is that he does not act the part, but lives it completely.” He added, “Toofaan is a story that will motivate and inspire all of us to get out of comfort zones and fight towards achieving our dreams. We cannot wait to present our film to viewers across the globe.”
The movie was originally scheduled to release in October 2020 but was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In the film, Farhan will be seen as a national-level boxing player. The film has been shot across Mumbai at real locations like the Dongri slums and the Gateway Of India.
The upcoming movie will mark the second collaboration between Rakeysh and Farhan after the superhit ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, a biopic on the life of star athlete Milkha Singh.
