"Farhan and his team members spend around two to three hours daily on practice sessions. The band will be performing some of Farhan's most popular tracks from his films such as Dil Chahta Hai (2001), and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013), among others," the source added.
His spokesperson confirmed about the event and said that Farhan is excited to visit Shillong and perform over there. "Farhan has been immensely excited for each of the shows that have happened in the past and is now very anxiously gearing up for this one!" his spokesperson added.
