Earlier, in an interview, Mehra had revealed that he was highly impressed with Farhaan’s dedication in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. And hence he feels that Farhan is the best choice he could’ve made for a protagonist in Toofan. Talking more about the project, Mehra stated that Toofan will inspire everyone to get out of their “comfort zones” and fight hard to achieve their dreams.
For those unaware, the film was earlier scheduled to have a theatrical release in October 2020 but was postponed due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Farhan will be portraying the role of a boxer and from the posters, we can say that he’s completely immersed in his character. The actor was last seen in the 2019 film The Sky Is Pink alongside Priyanka Chopra and Zaira Wasim. The film received mixed reviews from critics.
Coming back to Toofan, the film will also feature Mrunal Thakur, Isha Talwar, and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles.
