A still from Toofaan.

Toofaan’s new song Star Hai Tu is out. The track features Farhan Akhtar with Hussain Dalal, who appears to be his BFF in the film. The song takes place in an event after Farhan’s character Aziz Ali has won his first championship.

Interestingly, Farhan rolls the roulette on his belt, which could be a subtle hint that luck is on his side. The actor goes on to pay a tribute to various veteran actors, including Dev Anand, Shashi Kapoor and Manoj Kumar, as he shakes a leg with Hussian.

Watch the song here:

Mrunal Thakur’s Dr. Pooja Shah, who had been watching Aziz from a distance, suddenly takes centrestage. She enters doing laavni, which instantly takes us back to memories of Priyanka Chopra Jonas from Agneepath.

Unfortunately, Farhan and Mrunal lack the chemistry needed for the song. A back hug, which is usually considered a romantic gesture, comes across as the least bit romantic in the track.

Star Hai Tu is the second song which has been released from the film after Todun Taak. The track has been penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Himani Kapoor, Siddharth Mahadevan and Divya Kumar have crooned the song.

Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Toofaan is slated to release on Amazon Prime Video on July 16 across 240 countries. The film is produced by Excel Entertainment in association with ROMP Pictures.

Toofaan marks Farhan and Rakeysh’s second collaboration after Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The movie was loved by critics and audiences alike. Whether Toofaan will meet with the same fate, is something that the world will get to know soon.
