Farhan's parents cheered for him at concert
Posted: 23 September 2016, Friday
While Bollywood's actor-filmmaker-singer Farhan Akhtar has held concerts several times, the concert last week was a special one for him as it was attended by his parents, award-winning writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar and former actress and screenwriter Honey Irani.
A source close to Akhtar revealed that his parents were visibly happy having enjoyed the concert, and told Akhtar that they were "proud of him". Akhtar was happy too having his parents in the audience for the very first time. "Farhan was excited about the concert, as it was the first time that his parents saw him perform live on stage. What made him happier is the fact that they appreciated his act. Both his parents were sitting in the front row," shared the source.
The 42-year-old star's rep also confirmed the news saying, "Farhan was really happy to have both Javed sir and Honey Irani ma’am sit through his concert for the first time. They kept cheering for him."
Akhtar performed to almost all his hit songs from films like Rock On!! (2008), Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) among others.
On the work front, Akhtar will be seen next in Rock On!! 2, a sequel to the 2008 musical drama Rock On!!. Besides Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, Shahana Goswami and Purab Kohli who were part of the 2008 film will also be seen in the sequel in pivotal roles. In addition, the film will feature Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora, also in significant roles. Produced by Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under the banner of their production company Excel Entertainment, the film is slated to hit the theatres on 11 November 2016.
