Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Toofan also features Rajpal Yadav, Rishi Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Yashpal Sharma, Jatin Sarna, Manoj Pahwa, Vijay Raaz, Darshan Kumar and Supriya Pathak among others.
Directed and written by newcomer Divyang Thakkar, Jayeshbbhai Jordaar has Ranveer playing the titular character while the story is set in Gujarat. The film will clash with John Abraham’s patriotic action film Satyameva Jayate 2 which is also slated to release on October 2, 2021. The two big films will release on Gandhi Jayanti which happens to be a government holiday.
Interestingly, Toofan is reuniting Farhan with ROP with whom the actor gave one of the most remembered performances of his career in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The film also features Paresh Rawal in the role of Farhan’s coach. Actors Mrunal Thakur and Isha Talwar also play important roles in the film.
