Talking about the star’s social campaign, ‘MARD’, it technically came into the existence after an unfortunate incident in August 2012, when his 25-year-old employee Pallavi Purkavastha was brutally raped and assaulted by the watchman. But then coming back to Farhan Live, the band has helped spread awareness in the right tune in the minds of the youth.
