The songTodun Taak is brought to life by eminent rapper D’Evilaka Dhaval Parab & music producer Dub Sharma. TodunTaak is an ode to fighters and a call to ‘fight’ even in the face of annihilation and imminent defeat. The fight our warriors face is often against oppression, sexism, bullying, poverty, towards self-defence, a better chance at life. The video aims at bringing glory to the fighters who almost got knocked out but also got back on feet.
The action-packed and adrenaline pumping video has been edited by Anushka Manchanda and Sachin S. Pillai, who has also shot the video. Produced by Walkabout Films along with Ananya Dasgupta as Executive Producer, the video is scripted and directed by Navzar Eranee and opens with the voice of Toofaan, Farhan Akhtar.
Toofaan will also be the first film to simultaneously premiere on Amazon Prime Video in Hindi and English starting July 16, 2021 across 240 countries and territories.
