Farhan Akhtar starrer Toofaan is set to release this week on Amazon Prime Video. In the highly anticipated film, Akhtar plays a goon whose life changes when he finds his calling in sports and takes up the journey into becoming a world-class boxer. Ahead of the film’s release, many fans shared the film’s posters on social media, congratulating the actor and appreciating him for his efforts. One Twitter user, however, highlighted in her tweet that in one of the posters, Akhtar looks like Priyanka Chopra‘s character from the 2012 Anurag Basu film ‘Barfi’.
As soon as the tweet surfaced about a probable resemblance, Twitter users started flooding the comments with memes and hilarious reactions.

Toofan’s promo recently got featured on the billboards of New York’s Times Square.
