Mumbai: After giving a super-hit sports-drama based on the life of athlete Milkha Singh, Farhan Akhtar and filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra are all set to reunite once again for the film titled 'Toofan'. As per the reports of Mumbai Mirror, Toofan is based on boxing in which 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' actor will reportedly be seen playing a boxer. The film will be produced by Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani.

Note trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh also shared the news saying, "After #BhaagMilkhaBhaag, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar reunite for #Toofan... A heartfelt story of a boxer... Mehra will direct the film."

 

Speaking about a film's development, a source told a leading tabloid, "It’s not a biopic. It is a fictional story scripted by Anjum Rajabali. Farhan fell in love with it as soon as he heard it. Rakeysh has already started with the prep and Farhan will be training extensively in boxing. He is looking forward to working with Rakeysh again. The film should roll this year."
