It read, “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!” alongside a throwback picture of Farhan from the sets with Shibani.
‘Toofaan’ is helmed by filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra where Farhan is seen essaying the role of a boxer. It also stars Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles.
