Shibani shared a throwback picture of herself with Farhan from the sets of the film and wrote, “Watching your journey so closely has been nothing short of a privilege. You went to unimaginable lengths to get into the skin of the character, you didn’t give up till you found his authentic voice, you took your mind to the darkest of places, and you tested your body every single day. There was blood, sweat, punches, literal blows but you hit back with persistence, endurance, grit, resilience. Slowly the lines blurred and you literally morphed into AJJU BHAI aka AZIZ ALI BOXER!”
“Today, on your big day, I want you to know that I am sending you all my love. And I can’t wait for the world to witness the magic of Toofan. Proud of you Farhan! Todun Tak! @faroutakhtar Love you,” Shibani wrote.
Toofan is helmed by filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra starring Farhan Akhtar essaying the role of a national-level boxer. It also stars Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles. The film premiered on Amazon prime video on July 16.
