Speaking about his experience and what made him say yes to the film, veteran actor Paresh Rawal said, “Any new project is exciting when it’s challenging. Also, playing a boxing coach was a new challenge, and that fuels me as an actor. Toofaan at its core is about all the challenges one goes through and how one should never give up. It is a wholesome entertainer that is thrilling, thought-provoking, and motivating. Rakeysh has created a masterpiece and Farhan brings his A-game here. I am looking forward to the audience’s reaction to this movie and I hope they enjoy watching it just the way we enjoyed making it.”

Sharing her excitement working with the versatile cast, lead actress Mrunal Thakur sums up, “It’s purely a dream come true moment to work with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Paresh Rawal, and Farhan Akhtar.

Working with this deadly combination at this point in my career still feels like a dream. I couldn’t have asked for a better or more inspiring cast or a better release with Amazon Prime Video premiering the title across 240 countries and territories”
