Toofaan has psyched all the boxing fans! If you are into WWE or wrestling, then this is the jam you want to see. Well, piquing everyone’s interest a notch higher, the makers of the film have released a special behind-the-scenes video that gives us fans a sneak peek into what actually went into making this power-packed film. Just like Milkha Singh in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Farhan yet again manages to impress us with his intense workout. The video tells us how an actor turned into a beast and a ‘Toofaani’ boxer, Aziz Ali.
In the given video, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra says, ‘Boxing is a very unique sport. It’s not a sport for everyone.’ And we totally agree! If there was anyone who would do justice to a role like Ajju Bhai aka Aziz Ali, it is none other than Farhan Akhtar.
Farhan says in the video, “We didn’t train for a film, we trained to be a boxer!” The actor, not only learnt how to land a perfect punch but also took some brutal hits in the process without any stunt doubles. Completely dedicating himself from ground zero in boxing, the producer cum ace actor transformed himself in a way that is just unbelievable and his preparation - unmissable!
