Toofaan has triggered off a clamorous clique of protestors asking for a boycott against the film on the social media
Inter-cultural liaisons are rapidly growing unacceptable among a certain section of Indians.
Proof of this lies in the fact that Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s sports drama Toofaan has triggered off a clamorous clique of protestors asking for a boycott against the film on the social media since Farhan Akhtar playing a Muslim boxer is shown in a romantic relationship with a Hindu girl(played by Mrunal Thakur).
In the past very successful films like Mani Ratnam’s Bombay and Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan plotted their film around a Hindu-Muslim marriage.
But according to a leading filmmakar who doesn’t wish to be named, “Such inter-religious relationships are a thing of the past. We cannot make films about Hindu-Muslim romances and marriages. Sentiments are hurt. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is a politically conscious filmmaker. He should have known better.”
While no member of the Toofaan team agreed to talk on record an angry crew member wanted to know where we were heading to. “If it is not okay to fall in love with someone without ascertaining the person’s religion we will soon see movies where characters from minority communities are used only as props.You know that ‘Rahim Chacha’ syndrome? ”
Toofaan is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language sports drama film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and starring Farhan Akhtar as a national level boxer, alongside Mrunal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in supporting roles. The film will schedule to release on 16 July 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
