Farhan Akhtar has announced that the release of his upcoming film, Tofan, has been delayed, keeping in mind the severity of the coronovirus crisis. The film was scheduled to stream on Amazon Prime Video from May 21, 2021. Directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, the sports drama is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment.
The actor said in a statement, “The situation in India is truly heart-wrenching, and we at Excel Entertainment and ROM Pictures send their thoughts and prayers to all affected by the epidemic.” In light of the seriousness of the situation, our focus is on the epidemic as a whole and on helping our employees, their families and the wider community. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the release of our film An Toufen till the situation improves. We will release an update regarding the new release date in due time. “
He requested fans to follow all precautions in front of the spiraling numbers. “Please keep an eye on Kovid behaving appropriately. Without this. Please register and get vaccinated when it is your turn. On behalf of Tofan’s entire team, we call you Stay Home, Stay Safe and Stay United. Jai Hind.”
The actor plays the role of a national level boxing player. Tofan was originally scheduled to be released in October 2020, but was delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic. It marks the second collaboration between Rakesh and Farhan. He had previously collaborated for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, a biopic based on the life of athlete Milkha Singh.
“Tofan is a story that will inspire and inspire all of us to get out of comfortable areas and fight towards achieving our dreams. We cannot wait to present our film to audiences around the world. Farhan Akhtar was last seen in 2019’s The Sky Is Pink, which also starred Priyanka Chopra.
