Billed as a road trip drama, the film is produced by Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, and Tiger Baby, headed by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti.
Minutes after Farhan Akhtar posted his transformation pictures, he received comments from Bollwyood.
Mehra had offered Akhtar the part of Karan Singhania, which was eventually played by South star Siddharth.
From the trailer it is apparent the film is about a Aziz Ali (Farhan Akhtar), a goon from Dongri who finds success as a boxer, only to lose it all after a mistake.
The release of the movie, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, was deferred amid the surge in the COVID-19 cases in the country. It was previously scheduled to start streaming on Amazon from May 21.
Farhan, who also produces the film along with partner Ritesh Sidhwani and the film's director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, posted the joint statement of the makers on his Twitter account.
Sonu who tested positive for COVID-19 a few days back also stressed on providing free vaccinations to those who are needy.
