Farhan Akhtars prep commenced in March with the professional boxer Drew Neal and Darrell Foster. The actor shares, With Drew, I learnt authentic boxing. But Darrell altered that to make sure Im ready for the camera. For instance, while shooting, if Id cover my face completely in a boxing stance, the audience will not be able to see me. At the same time, I cant lower my arms such that I look like Im waiting to get hit. Thats the kind of gap that Darrell bridged. He also designed most of the choreography. Hes a taskmaster, but he also looks out for you, as well as the rest of the boxers onset; constantly ensuring theyre all doing okay. The actor will kick-start the second schedule in November. Talking about working with Darrell Foster, who trained Farhan for heavyweights, the actor says,Darrell has been boxing since the age of 10. Now at 61, he is fitter than most teenagers Ive seen. Talking about his previous film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and now, Toofan, Farhan further says, Running is not an alien concept. Everyone can run, some faster than the others, but you always have a general knowledge. Boxing is something I had to learn from scratch because I had never done it before. I am loving every bit of it.
