Although, the actor is currently touring the US with his music band Farhan Akhtar Live, he’s also taking out time for script-wrting. “Farhan is very passionate about his music. He makes sure to write all the songs himself. But he is enjoying writing the script for the award show as well and manages to take out at least some time daily to work on this,” says a source, close to the actor.
