Five months after Coldplay’s Chris Martin took Delhi by surprise with an impromptu gig, actorsinger-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar walked into a Mumbai pub on Friday, and performed for the awestruck audience. A source close to Akhtar reveals that he has been busy shooting for his upcoming film, and missing performing for a live audience. “The gig was a surprise for everyone there, and surely a big treat for all those who witnessed it. As soon as he came, people started cheering and hooting for Farhan. Soon, he started playing the guitar and sang songs from his films Rock On!! (2008) and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011). He also played tracks by some international artists,” says the source.
After his gig, the audience requested him to play one more song, and he did. “It was a rocking show. Some other group was about to go on the stage, but Farhan surprised everyone. He performed for about 40 minutes,” says Tushar Haldankar, who was present at the venue. Farhan, too, tweeted about the fun night. “Too much fun surprising the happy people at @ SocialOffline last night. #farhanliveatsocial #popupandplay,” he posted.
