Vijender Singh, a boxing legend, praised actor Farhan Akhtar’s “Toofan” teaser on Thursday. Farhan thanked Vijender for his compliment in return.
“Wow, the teaser looks fantastic! Thank you for helping to put boxing on the map. Vijender said, “All the best @FarOutAkhtar.”
Farhan responded by congratulating the Olympic bronze medalist on his accomplishments. “Thank you, @boxervijender,” says the user. Toh aapne aur aap jaise desh ko represent karnewale har ek boxer ne daala hai, map par toh aapne aur aap jaise desh ko represent karnewale har ek boxer ne daala hai. (You and other boxers like you have put boxing on the map.) Because of people like you, a film like Toofan can be made),” the actor-singer-filmmaker wrote.
Farah plays a man from the streets who works hard to become a national-level boxer in the film. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who directed Farhan in “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag,” is directing “Toofan.” Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal also star in “Toofan,” which will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on May 21.
