Shah Rukh Khan was recently seen being all praises for Farhan Akhtar’s Toofaan. Farhan Akhtar and SRK have worked together in the past with Farhan being the director of Don and Don 2, two of the best films of Shah Rukh Khan’s career.
So what did Shah Rukh Khan say about Toofaan? How did he rate the movie?
What Shah Rukh Khan Said?
SRK recently took to twitter to share his experience of watching the film. He appreciated the cast members and said more films like Toofaan should be made in the industry.
“Wish my friends @FarOutAkhtar @RakeyshOmMehra the best for their labour of love. I had the privilege to see it a few days back. Extremely fine performances by @SirPareshRawal (wow!) @mohanagashe @mrunal0801 @hussainthelal My review: we shld all try & make more films like Toofaan,” Shah Rukh Khan wrote.
What Is Toofaan About?
Toofaan casts Actor-Director Farhan Akhtar in the lead role as a boxing champion who was once a road goon.
The movie also features Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in the main role. The film was released Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
The film is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and received mixed reviews from critics.
The Hindustan Times movie review of Toofaan said, “Toofaan is the kind of film you would make after someone forces you to sit through a hundred popular Hindi films, and asks you to crunch them up and regurgitate the result. It does not seem like a passion project, but a film school assignment.”
Shah Rukh Khan – Farhan Akhtar Chemistry
Farhan has worked with Shah Rukh twice, in Don and Don 2.
Shah Rukh starred in the movie, which was the re-release of Amitabh Bachchan’s movie, Don. Don was released in 2006 and also featured Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Boman Irani, Arjun Rampal, Isha Koppikar and Om Puri in pivotal roles.
Farhan Akhtar put out a tweet when Don completed 13 years saying:
The number 13. Lucky for some. Unlucky for others. Don doesn’t give a damn..!! He creates his own destiny. Boom. A big shout out to the best cast and crew one could have hoped for to recreate this classic.” The film amassed a big fan following with Farhan and Shah Rukh regularly getting requests to make a third part of the series.
