Farhan Akhtar-starrer sports drama ‘Toofaan’ is the latest Bollywood project to make its way to streamer Amazon Prime Video. Produced by Excel Entertainment in association with ROMP Pictures, Toofaan stars Farhan Akhtar as a boxer, alongside Mrunal Thakur, Paresh Rawal, Supriya Pathak Kapur, and Hussain Dalal. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the highly-anticipated sports drama will premiere directly on Amazon Prime Video on May 21.
Speaking about collaborating with Farhan after the success of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ which was released 7 years ago, Rakeysh said, “After working with Farhan in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, I was certain he would be the perfect protagonist for ‘Toofaan’. The best thing about him is that he does not act the part, but lives it completely.”
Rakeysh further added, “Toofaan is a story that will motivate and inspire all of us to get out of comfort zones and fight towards achieving our dreams. We cannot wait to present our film to viewers across the globe.”
Sharing the excitement for the upcoming project, Ritesh Sidhwani said, “At Excel Entertainment, we always try to tell stories that touch the heart and soul of the audience. We consistently strive to develop new concepts which can entertain and enlighten the viewers. With Toofaan, we are presenting an inspirational sports drama that presents the story of a goon from the streets of Dongri set against the backdrop of boxing, his fall, and triumphant comeback against all odds in life.”
