Amazon Prime Video unveils an extraordinary glimpse into the passionate Farhan Akhtar owning the demanding role in Toofaan.

In the video, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra says, “Boxing is a very unique sport. It’s not a sport for everyone.” And we totally agree! If there was anyone who would do justice to a role like Ajju Bhai aka Aziz Ali, it is none other than Farhan Akhtar. 

Farhan says in the video, “We didn’t train for a film, we trained to be a boxer!” The actor, not only learnt how to land a perfect punch, but also took some brutal hits in the process without any stunt doubles. 

Completely dedicating himself from ground zero in boxing, the producer cum ace actor transformed himself in a way that is just unbelievable and his preparation - unmissable! 

Watch Farhan Akhtar perform his intense physical training here:

Ritesh Sidhwani produces Toofaan, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directs the sports drama. Toofaan is all set to premiere worldwide on July, 16 on Amazon Prime Video in English and Hindi.
