The first look of Farhan Akhtar’s much-awaited film Toofan is out. A sports drama directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, this film marks Akhtar’s second collaboration with the filmmaker after the commercially and critically successful Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Farhan shared the first look poster on his official Instagram account. The poster gives out Martin Scorsese’s cult film, Raging Bull airs. It features Farhan in the centre with a muscular body, all oiled and sweat-beaded, in a boxing ring and gloves in hands. Shades of warm tunes like black, red and brown dominate the poster which also says, “From the director of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.”
Katrina Kaif was among the first few to comment on Farhan’s poster with fire emoji.
Anil Kapoor also wrote, “Brilliant looking forward.”
Toofan is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar and is slated to release next year on Gandhi Jayanti alongside John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate 2.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adrash confirmed the news on social media.
