If Farhan Akhtar's latest Instagram entry doesn't make you speechless, we don't know what will. The 45-year-old actor shared a picture of the first look from the sports drama Toofan and intense can't even begin to describe it. In the picture, Farhan can be seen dressed in a boxing jersey and he can be seen wearing a pair of gloves as he stands in a boxing ring. The expression on Farhan's face is intense and the actor underwent massive training for his role as a boxer in the film. In his post, the Rock On!! actor also stated that the film is slated to release on October 2, this year. The actor wrote: "When life gets harder, you just get stronger. Iss saal Toofan uthega. Releasing on October 2, 2020. Happy to share this exclusive image with you as we dive into the new year. Hope you like it."
