Farhan Akhtar,  on Monday, shared a post, in which he chronicled his journey of becoming Aziz Ali (the name of his character in Toofaan) by gaining and shedding weight - all within a span of 18 months. "The many shapes and sizes of Ajju aka Aziz aka Toofaan," wrote Farhan Akhtar.

Toofaan opened to largely mixed reviews. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote about Farhan Akhtar's performance: "Farhan Akhtar, to whom the film's story idea is credited, delivers a credible performance."

Toofaan has been directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The sports drama is Farhan and Rakeysh's second project together. The duo have previously worked together in the 2013 film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which was based on the life of legendary field sprinter Milkha Singh. The film has been co-produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
