Toofan: After inciting the audience with his sporty look in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar is again set to take his audience from the same journey of an athlete in his next project Toofan. After back to back training sessions and BTS photos surfacing on the Internet, recently the makers released the first poster of the film featuring Farhan Akhtar.
In the poster, Farhan can be seen in a boxing ring, warming up by practising few punches, showcasing his muscle body. Moreover, with the poster, the makers also revealed that the film will release on October 2, 2020. The film is helmed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who also worked with the star earlier in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Moreover, the film will also face a clash with Vicky Kaushal’s Sardar Udham Singh and John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar’s film Satyameva Jayate 2 at the box office. Overall, it will be interesting for the audience to choose between different genres like action, biographical and a sports film at the big screens
Take a look at the poster–
