Toofaan trailer out: Farhan Akhtar pulls no punches
Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the sports drama is releasing on July 16
Amazon Prime Video has released the trailer of Toofaan. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the film stars Farhan Akhtar as a boxer in Mumbai.
Aziz (Farhan), an orphan boy from the streets of Dongri, grows up to be a local goon. His life changes when he meets Ananya (Mrunal Thakur), who guides him to take the right path. Eventually, Aziz/Ajju finds his calling in sports and is on his way to become a world-class boxer, while training under coach Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal). The trailer ends with Aziz, now back from a five-year sports ban, landing a knockout punch in the ring.
Toofaan is set to premiere on July 16 on Prime Video.
Lead actor and co-producer Farhan Akhtar shared, “Toofaan is a true labour of love. No matter how physically strong one is, stepping into the shoes of a boxer is a whole new ball game. It took 8 to 9 months of rigorous training for me to get into the skin character and it made me realize how physically, mentally and emotionally demanding the sport actually is."
