Hrithik Roshan calls Farhan Akhtar’s many shapes and sizes for Toofan insane see photos. Farhan Akhtar’s Toofaan has been a hot topic since its release, but what kept the film in the news even before it premiered on Amazon Prime Video was that Farhan turned into a boxer. Farhan plays Azju (Aziz), who became famous as Toofaan in the boxing ring.
The film traces the journey of the Farhan character and presents interesting and well-crafted boxing sequences. But the body transformation wasn’t a cakewalk for Farhan.
On the 10th, a photo of the actors Aju, Aziz, and Tupan transformed into was released. “Various shapes and sizes of Ajju aka Aziz aka Toofaan. How much ride. It’s 18 months of constant work, but it’s worth every drop of sweat, muscle aches, weight gain, and loss,” Farhan wrote with a photo post.
He made these changes for sports physiotherapist Anand Kumar, former kickboxing champion and coach Drew Neal, and fitness trainer Samir Jaura.
In fact, Farhan called the three “stars behind the scenes.” As soon as Farhan shared the post, Hrithik Roshan praised Farhan in the comments section. “Men! From 69 to 85? Crazy,” wrote the actor.
Siddhant Chaturvedi, Anusha Dandekar, and Karan Tacker also posted comments praising Farhan.
During the release of Toofaan’s trailer, Farhan spoke about why boxing requires more emotional and mental strength than physical strength. “When we were young, we watched boxing on the screen or boxed in a movie and we were excited or fantasized about doing it someday.
But when you (actually) train, you realize that no matter how much endurance you have and how physically fit you are, you are not prepared to handle it. It’s a very tough sport because there are mental, physical, and emotional aspects to it. It’s like playing chess.
You are constantly engaged. The fitness aspect is on screen, but it’s more than you see. It is more important to feel on the inside than on the outside,” Farhan said. In an interview with indianexpress.com, famous trainer Darrell Foster, who helped Farhan in the film’s boxing scene, praised the actor.
“I was impressed with his humility and professionalism, his attitude that I would open a book and be like a blank page,” he added. “I have to put Farhan on there with Will Smith.”
Shortly after the movie’s release, Shah Rukh Khan was one of the first to share his reaction to Torfaen.
Shah Rukh tweeted: “I wish my friend @FarOutAkhtar @RakeyshOmMehra the best in their love. I had the privilege to see it a few days ago. @SirPareshRawal (Wow!) @mohanagashe @mrunal0801 @hussainthelal very great performance.
” The actor also said, “My review: We will all try to make more and more movies like Tupan.” Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta also praised Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s director. The movie is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
