Web News Observer 44

Actor-producer-director Farhan Akhtar’s film ‘Toofan’ has been in controversy ever since its trailer surfaced. It is being trolled a lot by sharing the poster of the movie on social media. Critics have created an uproar against ‘Toofan’. Some have called it against Indian culture and religion. Most people believe that ‘love jihad’ is being promoted through this film.

Such is the reaction of people about the film

#BoycottToofan is trending on Twitter. People say that love jihad is being promoted in the movie.

One user tweeted, ‘Boycott every film which is against our civilisation and religion.

One wrote, ‘The storm is against our culture.’ Another person wrote, ‘Remember this is the same Farhan Akhtar, who opposed the CAA. Now is our time, blow its ‘storm’ into a storm.’

Earlier also, there was a protest against Farhan.

In March, when Farhan opposed the Citizenship Act (CAA), people had expressed anger against him. One user wrote, ‘Farhan had said during the CAA movement that when so many people agitate, such incidents keep happening, so now I am also becoming a part of this trend.’

One wrote, ‘If not Sushant, then not even Bollywood.’ Some users have also come forward in whose eyes Farhan is anti-Hindu.

The trailer of ‘Toofan’ was released on June 30

While posting the film’s trailer on social media on June 30, Farhan wrote, ‘The storm has arrived. Are you ready?’ Farhan played the character of boxer Aziz Ali in the film. However, Mrinal Thakur, who is seen in the role of his girlfriend and wife, plays the role of Pooja Shah. Ever since these names have surfaced in the film’s trailer, people are furious over the show of love jihad.

The film ‘Toofan’ is based on boxing. In this, Farhan is playing the role of Aziz Ali, aka Ajju Bhai, a goon who becomes a national-level boxer. The film is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who made the film ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ with Farhan. Mrunal Thakur is playing the role of Dr Ananya in the movie. Paresh Rawal is also a part of the film. ‘Toofan’ is slated to release on July 16 on Amazon Prime Video.
