Farhan Akhtar turned a year older a few days ago. Son of famed lyricist Javed Akhtar and brother of filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, the multi-talented star has carved an unparalleled niche for himself in the industry. His name is associated with a stellar body of work that more often than not has inspired audiences around the world. Farhan is also one of the few actors in Bollywood who has shown eminent dedication to preparing for his characters. From playing the iconic late athlete Milkha Singh in his biopic to the role of a boxer in last year’s sports drama Toofaan, Farhan has constantly pushed his limits.
On his birthday, filmmaker and photographer Zubin Soni congratulated the actor by sharing a special clip on social media. The compiled video features behind-the-scenes snippets of Farhan’s epic transformation into a national-level boxer for Toofaan. The inspiring journey was documented by Zubin and one can only be impressed by the incredible dedication of the actor. From working his punches on a boxing pad to training an animal stream with battle ropes, Farhan turns on his beast mode, leaving viewers stunned.
While sharing the post on Instagram, Zubin expressed his awe at Farhan’s remarkable achievement and unflinching focus. Farhan thanked Zubin by sharing the video on Instagram Stories.
Earlier, Farhan’s trainer for Toofan, Drew Neal, gave a taste of the actor’s hard work during the preparations. Drew, a former kickboxing champion, revealed Farhan’s horrific work while training for the film.
At a press presentation, Farhan shared his experience and insights about rigorous training over nearly nine months. “The point is, I’ve managed to keep myself fit for the most part. Whenever I start doing something new, the benefit of having a basic level of stamina and fitness helps,” he said.
