After wrapping up the shoot for 'The Sky is Pink', Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar is back on the game as he is now gearing up for his next venture 'Toofan'. The actor who will take up the lead role in the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's directorial will be featured as a boxer in the upcoming venture and the actor has left no stones unturned to ace the skill.
Recently, he shared a BTS video on Instagram where he can be seen sweating it out as he preps hard for the film. He can be seen practicing the combat sports with a dummy, as he captioned the post saying, "Getting there. A day at a time. 🥊 #ToofanInTheMaking #fitnesslife #skillset #speedball #painorpleasure #keepgoing #boxerlife 🥊 @drewnealpt 🏋🏾♀️ @samir_jaura"
Here's the post:
As per media reports, Farhan will not only act in the film but will also back it with Ritesh Sidhwani. Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra had previously collaborated in 2013 blockbuster 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', which was a biopic based on Indian athlete Milkha Singh. The film won Farhan a number of awards for his portrayal of the athlete.
Reportedly, unlike 'Bhaaag Milkha Bhaag', the upcoming sports drama would not be a biopic. It will be a fictional story. The actor is training extensively in boxing to get into his character for the film.
