After its OTT release, Farhan Akhtar-starrer 'Toofaan' will now reach out to an even wider base of the Indian audience with its world television premiere on Zee Cinema on October 31.

The film directed by maverick filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra portrays the journey of an extortionist who transforms into a boxer. The film marks Mehra and Akhtar's second collaboration after the National Award-winning 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'.

Talking about his experience on working in the film, Farhan Akhtar who played the protagonist, said, "While working on 'Toofaan' I realised there are no shortcuts when you want to portray a character like Aziz. And through this experience I came to believe that there are no shortcuts in life. You have to persevere and keep challenging yourself."

Adding further he said, "To showcase the character's body transformation with utmost fidelity, I had to first put on a great deal of weight and then shed all of that to have a boxer's physique. In short, there is nothing that should stop you if you have passion. That is the lesson of Aziz Ali's journey. Don't forget to watch the world television premiere of 'Toofaan' on Zee Cinema."

The film which also stars Paresh Rawal, Mrunal Thakur, Mohan Agashe and Supriya Pathak Kapoor has been produced by Excel Entertainment and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures.
