The Bollywood actor-filmmaker plays a boxer in the upcoming Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film Toofaan
Toofaan has been generating quite an interest since the film’s trailer was released. When the film’s lead star Farhan Akhtar was recently asked about which Indian actor would he fight if he had the chance to in a boxing ring, the actor said that it would be the late legendary actor Kishore Kumar.
Explaining why, Farhan says, “I would like to see Kishore Kumar in the ring. He had done a boxing scene in this hilarious film Half Ticket. It is one of the funniest scenes that I have seen. So only for that entertaining reason and to be able to meet him. I absolutely love the man and want to spend time with him, not to fight, but just for that. His character from Half Ticket would be great!”
Presented by Amazon Prime Video in association with Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures, Toofaan is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, and Farhan Akhtar. The sports drama is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and is all set to premiere on 16 July.
