The duo that gave us Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra are ready to make a comeback with “Toofan.” Toofan was rumoured to be another biopic but Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra in an interview revealed that it is a love story based on a fictitious character. Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra took to social media to release the first look of “Alok Oberoi,” which will be played by Farhan Akhtar.

This film would be the second collaboration between Farhan Akhtar and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra after Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013). In a recent interview Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra said, “With Farhan I am working after six years.” While talking about his relationship with the actor, he also said, “It takes you a couple of films to understand each other.”
