The pandemic has changed life overnight, including the functioning of the entertainment industry world over. As a number of films have skipped releasing in theatres opting for a direct OTT premiere, the next big venture to be recently announced to be coming out on Amazon Prime Video was the Farhan Akhtar starrer Toofaan. Announced to begin streaming on May 21, Toofaan directed by blockbuster filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is the next big Indian film to be skipping its theatrical release after Suriya's Soorarai Pottru, which came out last year, and the upcoming Jagame Thanthiram announced recently to be heading to Netflix. 

With Toofaan announced to begin streaming directly from May 21, promotions for the sports action drama have kicked off with Amazon Prime Video on Friday dropping an action-packed teaser, which shows Farhan flexing his muscles and going full out in the boxing sequences. The Toofaan teaser is packed action from start to finish, with Farhan's character given ample support by the female lead Mrunal Thakur and veteran National Award-winning actor Paresh Rawal, who is playing the director-actor's coach in the film. 

The second collaboration for Farhan and Rakeysh after their 2013 film, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Toofan also includes Supriya Pathak Kapur and Hussain Dalal in vital roles and is produced jointly by ROMP Pictures and Excel Entertainment featuring music by the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio. Composer Raju Singh has handled the background score, followed by Jay Oza for the cinematography and Anand Subaya taking care of the editing. 

Earlier, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra said, "After working with Farhan in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, I was certain he would be the perfect protagonist for Toofaan. The best thing about him is that he does not act the part, but lives it completely. Toofaan is a story that will motivate and inspire all of us to get out of comfort zones and fight towards achieving our dreams. We cannot wait to present our film to viewers across the globe!"
