Actor Hrithik Roshan, who has worked with Farhan on Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, took to the comment section to praise the actor. He wrote, “Man! 69 to 85 ?! That’s insane.” Farhan’s lady love and actress Shibani Dandekar also left a rather sweet comment for her beau. She wrote, “love all 3.” Abhishek Bachchan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Anusha Dandekar were among other actors to complement the Toofaan star.
Toofan’s director, Rakesh Omprakash Mehra while talking about Farhan’s transformation said, “It is not easy to plan a film where your hero has different looks. And, it is not just a haircut or a beard trim, it’s the whole physicality. There is a method to this madness which I don’t understand…”
Farhan Akhtar, on the other hand, said, “The big challenge in this one was getting out of shape. Not because it was physically difficult to do, you stop training, eat whatever you want, so all that allows for it to happen. I put on roughly about 14 or 15 kilos. I wanted to not rely on any kind of prosthetic to make you look bigger and make you look fatter…”
Toofan premiered on 16 July 2021, in which Farhan played the role of a national-level boxer.
