Farhan Akhtar who has played a protagonist in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and is now gearing up for the film ‘Toofan’ in which he will be essaying a role of Boxer, has a lot to say about the films which are based on the lives of sports personalities. The multi-talented personality Farhan has been promoting sports in the country, in his own best capacity- be it through films or him being chosen as the Indian ambassador for the UEFA champions league.
Talking about films being made on the sports personalities, Farhan shares, “We, in our history have had some amazing sports heroes and if their stories can be shared which they should be then, of course, you celebrate the career of that person and there’s a lot to learn from it. There’s a lot of drama in sports and when you see a person’s career, there are always ups and downs at times. There would be a lot of struggle from where they have come so there’s a lot to learn, especially for kids and they have a lot of positive messages that can be taken from such films.”
The actor’s preparations are in full swing for his upcoming next ‘Toofan’ and a testimony of the same can be seen on Farhan’s social media where time and again the actor treats his fans with insights to his workout regime.
A widely celebrated, successful and influential celebrity in India, Farhan is an actor, screenwriter, director, and producer with countless movies to his credit. He has also flexed his musical muscles before – not just playing a part of the frontman of a rock band in the critically acclaimed film, Rock On!! (2008) – but he has also been keen on recording his own album for the longest time.
After 2013, six years later in 2019, the hit duo- Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra are all set to reunite to create magic on screen for a film based on boxing titled, Toofan, an Excel Entertainment production in association with ROMP Pictures.
As rightly, the multitalented and multifaceted, Farhan is gearing up for his upcoming movie, ‘The Sky Is Pink’ where the actor will be sharing the screen with Priyanka Chopra after their previous work, Dil Dhadakne Do, which too created a buzz then!
