The Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's directorial Toofan will see Farhan playing a boxer. The duo had earlier collaborated for the biopic based on Indian athlete Milkha Singh, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which won Farhan a number of awards for his portrayal of the athlete. Reportedly, unlike Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, the upcoming sports drama would not be a biopic but a fictional story. Check out videos of Farhan prepping for his role in Toofan
