Farhan Akhtar’s upcoming movie Toofaan was headed for an OTT release in the month of May. However, the actor who will be playing the leading role in the film took to his Twitter handle to announce that the release of the film has been slated owing to the testing times the nation has been facing due to the second wave of COVID.
His post on Twitter said, “The situation in India is truly heart-breaking, and we at Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures send our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the pandemic. In light of the severity of the situation, our focus is completely on the pandemic and on supporting our employees, their families, and in helping the wider community. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the release of our film ‘Toofaan’ until the situation improves. We will issue an update regarding the new release date in due course of time.”
