Guwahati: Farhan Akhtar-starrer Toofaan’s trailer is out. The film narrates the story of Aziz Ali (Akhtar) who rises from the ashes, not once but twice.
Farhan’s Aziz is introduced as a small-time goon who looks up to Mohammed Ali but aims to become Amitabh Bachchan of the boxing world. While Mrunal Thakur motivates him to rise and achieve his dream, Paresh Rawal plays the role of his coach.
However, soon the tables turn. As Aziz basks in success, he is outed as a traitor to the sport and banned for 5 years. Now, Farhan returns to the ring, this time to fight for redemption.
The Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra also stars Supriya Pathak Kapur and Hussain Dalal in pivotal roles. Akhtar seems to have gone through some strenuous training to ace his role of a boxer. Going by Mehra’s last sports drama, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, it seems this one too will leave an impact on the audience.
Toofaan is not a biopic but a fictional story written by Anjum Rajabali. It will start streaming on July 16.
