After giving us one of the finest movie of this decade with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Bollywood star Farhan Akhtar and filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra are collaborating again for the sports drama titled Toofan.

While the film is expected to go on floors soon, Farhan Akhtar who will be playing the role of a boxer has started the prepping for his character with former world kickboxing champion Drew Neal. The actor shared a clip from the training session and captioned it, "It's not just about strength but speed as well #ToofanInTheMaking"



According to sources, "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."

Talking about the same Rakeysh said, "I am most excited for the film. I can't talk much because we haven't even started shooting. We are planning to go on the floors by the end of the year. Both Farhan and I are getting to work with each other after six years. We have always been bouncing ideas off each other." He further added, "Anjum Rajabali has written this very endearing love story of a boxer, it's not a real-life figure but a fictitious character. What I liked the most about it (the story) was that it has a new voice. It's set among the lower middle class. Boxing is not a rich man's sport, anywhere in the world."



For now, the actor will be seen in The Sky Is Pink which also stars Priyanka Chopra and Zaira Wasim and reportedly revolves around Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13.
