Actor Farhan Akhtar, who is currently basking in the success of his recently released movie Toofaan, on Saturday, shared a social media post introducing fans to the team that trained him for the sports drama.
Farhan took to his Instagram handle and shared a photo from the movie’s set in which he could be seen standing with his team members that included Darrell Foster, Drew Neal, Samir Jaura and Anand Kumar.
In the photo that garnered more than 23 thousand likes, Farhan showed off his ripped boxer physique, which he trained rigorously for.
Toofaan has been produced by Ritesh Sidhwani (Excel Entertainment), Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (ROMP Pictures), and Farhan.
