The trailer was released on Amazon Prime Video India, the platform where the film is releasing on July 16. During the virtual trailer launch of his film, Farhan highlighted the struggle he had to go through to look like a boxer on-screen.
The actor said, “Toofaan is a true labour of love. No matter how physically strong one is, stepping into the shoes of a boxer is a whole new ball game. It took 8 to 9 months of rigorous training for me to get into the skin character and it made me realize how physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding the sport actually is. I am thoroughly excited to see all our hard work on the screen and I am glad we are going to be able to take the movie to audiences across 240 countries and territories with Amazon Prime Video.”
Both Paresh and Mrunal called their film a ‘masterpiece’ by Rakeysh Mehra. They said that the film is largely about not giving up on anything in life.
