After impressing audiences with the power-packed trailer of Farhan Akhtar starrer, Amazon Prime Video today unveiled yet another impactful video for the film’s song – Todun Taak.
The high-octane music video emboldens the audience with the power of one’s inner strength, willpower, and the courage to fight against all odds and features “India Ke Toofaan” – boxing champions from across the country.
The four-minute video features the real heroes of Indian boxing including – World Championship Gold, Silver and Bronze Medalists Laishram Sarita Devi, Sonia Chahal, Kavita Chahal, two-time Youth World Champion Nitu Ghanghas, and Indian International Boxing Championship Gold Medalist Thulasi Helen along with three-time WBC Asia Title Holder – Neeraj Goyat and State Championship Silver Medalist – Aman Jhangda, the All India Federation Cup Medalist – Gagan “The Pitbull” Sharma, National Boxing Championship Gold and Bronze medalists – Arbind Kumar Prasad and Binod Kumar Prasad and East Zone National Boxing Championship Gold and Silver medalists – Swayam Mallik and Binit Gurung.
The video was filmed with the support of the boxing community and academies like Bhiwani Boxing Club (Haryana), Sarita Regional Boxing Academy (Manipur), Balaji Boxing Club (Kolkata), Bhowanipur Boxing Association (Kolkata), Najafgarh Boxing Academy (Delhi), and Ryûko Training Center (Las Vegas).
The song Todun Taak is brought to life by eminent rapper D’Evil aka Dhaval Parab & music producer Dub Sharma.
Todun Taak is an ode to fighters and a call to ‘fight’ even in the face of annihilation and imminent defeat. Those that fight inside the ring so that they can have a better life outside of it. The fight our warriors face is often against oppression, sexism, bullying, poverty, self-defense, a better chance at life. The video aims at bringing glory to the fighters who almost got knocked out but also got back on their feet. Inside and outside the ring. Ab sahi mein toofaan uthega!
The action-packed and adrenaline-pumping video has been edited by Anushka Manchanda and Sachin S. Pillai, who has also shot the video. Produced by Walkabout Films along with Ananya Dasgupta as Executive Producer, the video is scripted and directed by Navzar Eranee and opens with the voice of Toofaan, Farhan Akhtar.
