Farhan Akhtar is a proud dad. Reason? It looks like his daughter Akira Akhtar has inherited her father's singing skills. On Friday, the actor shared a video in which his daughter is seen singing on stage with a band supporting her. The young singer performed Tori Kelly's hit song Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing with ease and confidence, impressing the audience. Posting the video, Farhan Akhtar said, “You've come a long way, Akira Akhtar .. keep going …the world is your oyster. Shannon Donald big hug (you know why). Shout out to the incredible band on stage last night,” and tagged members of the band.
Farhan Akhtar's wife actress Shibani Dandekar replied to the post saying, “ What a [star emoji].” Her sister Anusha Dandekar said, “Omg,” with heart-eye emojis. Composer and prolific guitarist Ehsaan Noorani said, “Super.” Singer-composer Vishal Dadlani wrote, “Legit.”
