Actor Darshan Kumar will play the antagonist in Farhan Akhtar’s boxing film, Toofan.

Written by Anjum Rajabali, the sports drama is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Darshan made his Bollywood debut in Mary Kom (2014). He has essayed negative roles in the films NH10, A Gentleman and Baaghi 2. He played a television journalist in PM Narendra Modi (2019).

In Toofan, Darshan portrays a Maharashtrian boxer named Dharmesh Patil. The actor underwent two month’s training for the part at a boxing facility in Mumbai. “This is the first time that I'm playing a boxer, so I'm really excited,” Darshan said. “Though I can't divulge much about my role at this point, all I can say is that he is a different kind of person and the audience will see me in a different light.”

Toofan also stars Paresh Rawal and Isha Talwar. The film went on floors last month and is scheduled to release in 2020.
