Earlier, Farhan talked about the struggle he underwent for his role as a boxer. Taking to Instagram, the actor shared about his journey where he is seen practicing the sport. He spoke about how he became more disciplined because of the preparation sessions.
He wrote, ”I hated drills. To wake up at 5 am and think about that monster of a drill session waiting for me was, at times, good enough reason to make some random excuse and just stay in bed..!! But @drewnealpt got me to respect the discipline and with time I realized how much it helped in evolving my overall skills as a boxer. To quote the legendary Cus D’amato “Discipline is doing what you hate but doing it as you love it.” I guess that’s the mantra for improvement in any aspect of life, right? Thank you for the valuable lesson @drewnealpt @samir_jaura @darrellfoster #ToofaanUthega #21stMay #ToofaanOnPrime”.
Toofaan is produced by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The film is all set to premiere on 16 July 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
