Earlier, Farhan had taken to talk about the struggle behind the training he underwent for his role of a boxer. Farhan posted a picture on Instagram, where he is seen practising the sport. He spoke about how he became more disciplined thanks to the preparation sessions of the film.
“I hated drills. To wake up at 5am and think about that monster of a drill session waiting for me was, at times, good enough reason to make some random excuse and just stay in bed..!! But @drewnealpt got me to respect the discipline and with time I realised how much it helped in evolving my overall skills as a boxer. To quote the legendary Cus D’amato “Discipline is doing what you hate but doing it like you love it.” I guess that’s the mantra for improvement in any aspect of life, right? Thank you for the valuable lesson @drewnealpt @samir_jaura @darrellfoster #ToofaanUthega #21stMay #ToofaanOnPrime” he wrote.
