The official trailer of Farhan Akhtar’s upcoming boxing drama, ‘Toofan’ has been released on Amazon Prime Video.
The film stars Farhan Akhtar, Mrunal Thakur, Paresh Rawal and Supriya Pathak Kapur.
Lead actor and co-producer Farhan Akhtar revealed how challenging it was to get under the skin of his character. Talking about his role and preparation behind it, the actor said, “Toofaan is a true labour of love. No matter how physically strong one is, stepping into the shoes of a boxer is a whole new ball game. It took 8 to 9 months of rigorous training for me to get into the skin character and it made me realize how physically, mentally and emotionally demanding the sport actually is. I am thoroughly excited to see all our hard work on the screen and I am glad we are going to be able to take the movie to audiences across 240 countries and territories with Amazon Prime Video.”
Speaking about his experience and what made him say yes to the film, veteran actor Paresh Rawal said, “Any new project is exciting when it’s challenging. Playing a boxing coach was a new challenge, and that fuels me as an actor. Toofaan at its core is about all the challenges one goes through and how one should never give up. It is a wholesome entertainer that is thrilling, thought provoking and motivating. Rakeysh has created a masterpiece and Farhan brings his A-game here. I am looking forward to the audiences reaction to this movie and I hope they enjoy watching it just the way we enjoyed making it.”
Sharing her excitement working with the versatile cast, lead actress Mrunal Thakur sums up, “It’s purely a dream come true moment to work with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Paresh Rawal and Farhan Akhtar. I remember sending Rakeysh a Facebook message seven years back expressing my willingness to work with him and today its happening! I am thrilled, blessed and over the moon to be part of this exciting project. Working with this deadly combination at this point of my career still feels like a dream. I couldn’t have asked for a better or more inspiring cast or a better release with Amazon Prime Video premiering the title across 240 countries and territories”
‘Toofan’ releases on 16th July 2021.
