With Toofaan, Farhan and Rakeysh have collaborated for the second time after the resounding success of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013). Speaking about his reunion with Farhan after seven years, Rakeysh had earlier said in a statement, "After working with Farhan in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, I was certain he would be the perfect protagonist for Toofaan. The best thing about him is that he does not act the part, but lives it completely".

Farhan, who was last seen in The Sky Is Pink (2019) opposite Priyanka Chopra, is yet to announce his next project after Toofaan.

Meanwhile, Mrunal also has Jersey and Pippa in her kitty.
