MUMBAI: Amazon Prime Video unveiled last week yet another impactful video for the film’s song – TodunTaak. 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 KeToofaan” – 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 song TodunTaak is brought to life by eminent rapper D’Evil aka Dhaval Parab & music producer Dub Sharma. TodunTaak 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, towards 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 feet. Inside and outside the ring. Ab sahimeintoofaanuthega!
