The inspiring sports drama ‘Toofaan’, which reunites Farhan Akhtar and director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra after the success of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, is already very excited. In addition to the enthusiasm, the makers have now engaged Arijit Singh for two love songs in the film, which Amazon is presenting in cooperation with Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures.
Music has always played an important role in all of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s films, so it’s no surprise that ‘Toofaan’ has 6 songs on the album. Interestingly, while the film is an inspirational sports drama, it has a strong love story and will also feature two romantic songs that are unique to the film and add to the plot beautifully. While one song is composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, the other is composed by Samuel Shetty & Akanksha Nandrekar.

Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra says of the development: “We have two romantic numbers in ‘Toofaan’ and when the songs were written and composed there was absolutely no doubt that Arijit should be the voice for it. For me, love and romance always come first and Arijit is not only a beautiful voice today, but also the voice of a generation. “He adds,” When you have someone like this working with you on a project that in itself is a historic moment. I’m a huge fan of his and we admire each other a lot. “
Says producer Ritesh Sidhwani, “In ‘Toofaan’, the love story is a major driving force, and the two tracks Arijit sung fit in seamlessly with the narrative and move the story forward. It was just perfect that Arijit came on board to sing these two tracks. “
“Toofaan,” the inspirational sports drama by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar, will premiere on May 21, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
