Farhan Akhtar and Toofan star Mrunal Thakur have been postponed more than once now and the filmmakers are looking for a new date to release the film on OTT. Due to the current situation, Farhan had announced that the film would be postponed indefinitely as it would be unresponsive to release it during the second wave of the pandemic.
Speaking of which, Mrunal said she was slightly disheartened that one of her biggest movies won’t be hitting theaters, but happy that it is available in many countries at the same time due to the OTT release. She further spoke about Farhan’s performance in the film and said she wanted to celebrate his hard work and dedication because he himself was outdone. She said, “Farhan did a fabulous job. If Bhaag Milkha Bhaag was great, Toofan is simply out of the world. He gave this film his all and after the release too, when things are sorted out, I would like to celebrate Farhan as Toofan and watch the film in theaters. It is one of my desires. You know the joy of watching a movie in movie theaters is something else. “
Another highly anticipated project with the actor is Jersey with Shahid Kapoor.
Speaking about her role and how Shahid Kapoor helped her, Mrunal told us about Sarah in an exclusive chat and said, “Shahid helped me act out scenes. He helped me understand the character better. What he made me realize is that I’m a 2020 girl but the character I’m playing in Jersey is not a 2020 girl. She is from a girl from the 1992 or 1996 era and the thought process also varies accordingly. ”
She further explained how skeptical she was about Jersey as she was already a part of another sports drama, Toofan, but the range of characters and the difference between the two prompted her to reprise the film.
