Actor, singer, filmmaker Farhan Akhtar is all set to collaborate with filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Six years ago, the duo had given fans a blockbuster in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’. It was a biopic on Flying Sikh Milkha Singh and went on to garner praise from all quarters and initiated the trend of biopics in Bollywood.


Now, the filmmaker and the actor are coming together for their next titled ‘Toofan’. Farhan will not only act in the movie, but also back it with Mehra. Yes, Excel Entertainment is presenting ‘Toofan’ an Excel Entertainment production in association with ROMP pictures.

The news was confirmed by Farhan Akhtar who tweeted,

As reported by a source to Bollywoodlife, “It’s not a biopic. It is a fictional story scripted by Anjum Rajabali. Farhan fell in love with it as soon as he heard it. Rakeysh has already started the prep and Farhan will be training extensively in boxing. He is looking forward to working with Rakeysh again. The film should roll this year.”

On the work front, Farhan is busy with his next – a Shonali Bose flick ‘The Sky Is Pink’. The movie also features Priyanka Chopra and Zaira Wasim in pivotal roles. It is also rumoured that he might also start work on ‘Don’ franchise’s next instalment with Shah Rukh Khan.
