Mumbai, October 13

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar on Sunday revealed he suffered a hairline fracture in his hand while shooting for his next ‘Toofan’. 

The 45-year-old actor took to Instagram to share the update.

"When nature plays Tetris... and yup, that's my first legit boxing injury... a hairline fracture on the hamate found among the carpal bones of the hand," Farhan wrote as he shared an X-ray image.

‘Toofan’, a sports drama, is being directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and will feature Farhan in the role of a boxer.

This will be the actor-director duo's second project post ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, a 2013 biopic on legendary Indian athlete Milkha Singh.

The film also stars Paresh Rawal and Mrunal Thakur and will hit the screens on October 2, 2020. It is co-produced by Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures. — PTI
