Toofan is Farhan Akhtar's second collaboration with director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra after the hit sports biopic, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013). “Toofan is a story that will move and motivate all of us. It’s so much fun to collaborate with Farhan yet again. He does not act the part, but becomes one. I can’t wait to share the film with the audience,” said the filmmaker in an earlier interview.
Farhan Akhtar has undergone a major body transformation and trained in professional boxing to absorb the role. He first had to lose weight and build a physique to look the part. After which, he had to undo all of that for a portion in the film that required him to put on 15 kilos in 6 weeks. His body transition from fit to heavy was a massive challenge for him and his team.
The film is co-produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and it also features Paresh Rawal in a pivotal role.
