Farhan Akhtar recently posted a video while he was practicing boxing for his upcoming movie Toofan. He will be playing the role of a boxer in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar and filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra have reunited for another project 'Toofan.' They were first seen together in the film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag together. A few days ago, Akhtar took to his Twitter account and wrote, "The film will be a 'heartfelt story of a boxer'".
However, the news about the rest of the star cast is yet unrevealed. Besides that, Farhan Akhtar took to his social media account and shared a clip where he can be seen practicing boxing with full energy. He captioned it, "It's not just about the strength but speed as well #Toofaninthemaking."
Rakeysh while talking to PTI said, "I am most excited for the film. I can't talk much because we haven't even started shooting. We are planning to go on the floors by the end of the year. Both Farhan and I are getting to work with each other after six years. We have always been bouncing ideas off each other." He further added, "Anjum Rajabali has written this very endearing love story of a boxer, it's not a real life figure but a fictitious character. What I liked the most about it (the story) was that it has a new voice. It's set among the lower middle class. Boxing is not a rich man's sport, anywhere in the world."
