Covid-19 Crisis: Farhan Akhtar Starrer Toofaan Release Postponed


The makers of Toofaan starring Farhan Akhtar had earlier announced that they are keen to release their film on May 21, 2021.

But now, there is a different thought process going on according to which the film’s release date has been postponed. It’s been done due to Covid-19 crisis.

As you know, the second wave of coronavirus has almost devastated the country with lakhs of causalities re being reported across the country.

At this time, it’s not a great idea to release the film in theaters. And so, the makers have decided to postpone the release date of Toofaan.

As per the latest Bollywood news, Toofaan will now be directly released on Amazon Prime Video. It was the Bollywood star himself who first broke this news on his social media account to confirm the same.


Take a look at what Farhan Akhtar has to say, “The situation in India is truly heart-breaking, and we at Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures send our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the pandemic. In light of the severity of the situation, our focus is completely on the pandemic and on supporting our employees, their families and in helping the wider community. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the release of our film ‘Toofaan’ until the situation improves. We will issue an update regarding the new release date in due course of time. Please continue to observe Covid Appropriate Behaviour. Also, please register and get vaccinated when it’s your turn. On behalf of the entire team of Toofaan, we urge you to Stay Home, Stay Safe and Stay United. Jai Hind,” the statement said.

Toofaan stars Farhan Akhtar and Mrunal Thakur. It’s directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and is basically a sports drama that has high expectations of makers. But now, the film will be released directly on the OTT platform.
