Recently the teaser of the movie ‘Toofaan’ was released by the makers. The film stars dashing Farhan Akhtar along with Mrunal Thakur and legend Paresh Rawal. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the film is said to be shot on real locations to achieve an authentic look and experience.
Talking about the same director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra shares, ” The script demanded some very real and raw locations and it was most definitely not an easy job. We got into it knowing the challenges, but those that were definitely worth exploring. We shot in Dongri and Nagpada for about a month. The residents in the area were extremely accommodating and lovely to work with. Overall it was a demanding yet pleasant experience for us to work on this very very special film.”
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra further added, “Shooting in real locations with a loved star like Farhan, was a challenge. In areas like Dongri, controlling the crowd for the first few days was also a task for the team. But gradually, the crowd became more cordial and made it easy for us to shoot.”
Dongri and Nagpada area is famous for its old Bombay charm. It is one of the most populated neighborhoods in the Mumbai. These places are known for many big gangs. No wonder shooting on these locations must have been very challenging for the entire team of ‘Toofaan’. The makers are sure to bring us the magical experience.
With the sport of boxing as it’s backdrop, ‘Toofaan’ is a dramatic love story of a goon from the streets of Dongri and a middle class doctor who not only changes his life but gives him its largest purpose. The response on the teaser has been fantastic and the audiences can’t wait to see what this actor-director has in store for them.
‘Toofaan’ is presented by Amazon in association with Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures, produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra & Farhan Akhtar & is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. ‘Toofaan’ will be premier on Amazon Prime Video on 21st May 2021.
