Talking about the preparations Farhan Akhtar had to do for the role, his coach Drew Neal said, “Farhan was training two hours every single day. The speed that he was learning at was probably four-folds of what a normal beginner boxer would actually take. So, instead of one year’s training, he was hitting more like four years’ training.” Farhan was initially trained by Drew and then was handed over to Darrell for the training camp, and post that the shoot began in August 2019.

Presented by Amazon Prime Video in association with Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures, ‘Toofaan’ is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash and Farhan.
