IPL 2020: Farhan Akhtar to promote ‘Toofan’ ahead of the opening match
Farhan Akhtar will be promoting his upcoming film, Toofan at the Star Sports 'Cricket Live' before the IPL 2020 game.
On September 19, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be kick-starting today and the first match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Ahead of the match, Farhan Akhtar will be seen promoting his upcoming sports drama Toofan at the Star Sports ‘Cricket Live’ tonight.
Talking about the same, Farhan said in a statement, “These are trying times and our nation continues to persevere and move forward. With the world picking up pace in the new normal, the announcement of the IPL was a breath of fresh air. I have been looking forward to some sporting action, and live Indian cricket is back after a long hiatus. There’s much to learn from the journey of a team or an individual in it. To rise after you fall, to learn from one’s mistakes and most importantly, to stay grounded and humble in victory.”
