India has been severely hit by the second wave of Covid. The daily surge is on and several industries have been badly hit again due to this second influx. In the entertainment industry, several shootings have been halted, with bog films having to postpone their release date. Another movie has joined the list recently. You are right, we are talking about Farhan Akhtar starrer Toofaan which has been helmed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra which was slated to release on May 21 on the digital platform.
Announcing the decision, Farhan shared a statement from the makers wherein the Toofaan team has requested the audiences to stay inside their houses during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The statement read, “The situation in India is truly heart-breaking, and we at Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures send out 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 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. Please continue to observe Covid Appropriate Behaviour. Also, please register and get vaccinated when it’s your turn. On behalf of the entire team of Toofaan, we urge you to Stay Home, Stay Safe and Stay United. Jai Hind.”
