The makers of the film have released an exclusive behind the scenes video sharing a small glimpse of the making of this power-packed film for fans. In the video Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra says, “Boxing is a very unique sport. It’s not a game for everyone.” And we completely agree with this. If there was anyone who can do justice to a character like Ajju Bhai aka Aziz Ali, it is none other than Farhan Akhtar. Farhan Akhtar says in the video, “We didn’t train for the film, we trained to be a boxer.”
Farhan Akhtar’s training to become a boxer
Farhan not only learned to land a perfect punch but also took some brutal hits in the process without any stunt doubles. Dedicating himself completely from ground zero in boxing, producer turned actor Farhan transformed himself in a way that is unbelievable and his preparation – amazing. Farhan gave a glimpse of the kind of training he went through to become a boxer in Toofan through a video.
The film is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar. Toofan is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra starring Farhan Akhtar and also stars Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in lead roles.
Toofan will stream on Amazon Prime Video in India and in 240 countries and territories starting July 16, 2021.
