The atmosphere was shayarana as famous Bollywood celeb Farhan Akhtar recited the verses of actor-turned-writer Rajev Paul’s book “Mumbai, Mohabbat and Tanhai” in his inimitable style. Farhan also has a flair for writing which is obvious because of his lineage. He appreciated Rajev's poetry and was very happy to recite poems of Rajev Paul. The main poem "Tanhai" was inspired from the song "Tanhai" from Farhan's film "Dil Chahta Hai". Farhan read two of his favourite poems which he selected himself. Farhan stated, “Reading poems have been always passion and when I read "Tanhai", I figured out Rajev is extremely talented though I always knew his flair of writing." Hearing this Rajev exclaims, “Farhan’s gesture to agree to read poetry has been very humbling and I am indebted to him for the same ". Other than Farhan, present at the event were Raageshwari Loomba, Suchitra Pillai, Raghu, Lillete Dubey, Satish Kaushik, Shama Sikander, Raaja Bundela, Prashant Sharma, Amy Billimoria, Anjali and Madhuri Pandey, Prashant Shirsat, etc. Rakesh Paul was seen standing next to his brother, Rajev, throughout the function.
