Seems like Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar is leaving no stone unturned to get into the skin of his character in the upcoming film `Toofan`.

After playing an athlete in the 2013 blockbuster `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`, the actor is gearing up for another power-packed role for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial where he will play a boxer.

Taking to his Instagram account, Farhan shared a video of himself prepping hard for his role in the upcoming sports-drama, which is a narrative of a boxer and his endearing love story. The clip shows the 45-year-old actor sharpening and working on his boxing skills. He captioned the post as, "It`s never over till the trainer says it`s over .. #ToofanInTheMaking."

The `Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara` actor is quite active on the photo-sharing application and keeps sharing several posts about his preparation for the film that will definitely make his fans eager to watch him essay the role of a professional boxer on the big screen.

Akthar and Mehra had earlier collaborated for the biopic based on Indian athlete Milkha Singh, which won Farhan a number of awards for his portrayal of the athlete.

Reportedly, unlike `Bhaaag Milkha Bhaag`, the upcoming sports drama would not be a biopic but a fictional story. 

Meanwhile, Farhan will also be seen in Shonali Bose`s `The Sky Is Pink` for which he has reunited with his `Dil Dhadakne Do` co-star Priyanka Chopra. The film also features `Dangal` fame Zaira Wasim in a pivotal role.

On the personal front, Farhan is rumoured to be in a relationship with Shibani Dandekar and the two have been actively sharing pictures from their outings on their social media accounts.
