Watch Video: Farhan Akhtar takes up boxing to train for Toofan

Farhan Khan who wrapped up ‘The Sky is Pink’ last month with Priyanka Chopra has began prepping for his next film. The actor will be seen in sports drama titled, ‘Toofan’ directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. His recent training video has fans gasping for air.

Farhan shared a video on Instagram that shows him boxing. While parring with his trainer, he starts slow but quickly picks up the speed which makes the video look like its on fast forwarded. The video also shows how the actor is already in shape for the film and has ripped arms and legs.

This will mark Farhan’s second sports drama and collaboration with Rakeysh. After the biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, ‘Toofan’ is a fictional story around boxing.

Talking about the film, Rakesyh had earlier told PTI, “I am most excited for the film. I can’t talk much because we haven’t even started shooting. We are planning to go on the floors by the end of the year. Both Farhan and I are getting to work with each other after six years.

We have always been bouncing ideas off each other. Anjum Rajabali has written this very endearing love story of a boxer, it’s not a real life figure but a fictitious character. What I liked the most about it (the story) was that it has a new voice. It’s set among the lower middle class. Boxing is not a rich man’s sport, anywhere in the world.”
