Published: 16th June 2021

Farhan Akhtar-starrer Toofan will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on July 16. The boxing drama, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, was earlier set to stream from May 21. However, it was delayed due to the second wave of the covid-19 pandemic.

Announcing the new release date, Farhan tweeted, “With humility, love and in dedication to the fighting spirit of the beautiful people of our nation, our film Toofaan will be releasing on July 16th.'

In Toofan, Farhan essays a boxer trying to escape his criminal past. The film also stars Paresh Rawal as his boxing coach and Mrunal Thakur as his romantic interest. It was shot extensively in Dongri and Nagpada in Mumbai.

Rakeysh and Farhan had previously collaborated on the sports biopic, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013). Farhan’s last acting appearance was in The Sky Is Pink in 2019. He’s also rumoured to feature in Disney’s Ms Marvel miniseries.
