The duo also gifted the music CD of 'Tamanchey' to the Tihar music band.
Tihar jail DIG Mukesh Prasad, Jail superintendent Rajesh Chauhan and other senior officials were also present during the event.
Thanking the stars for their kind gesture and for accepting the invitation to be a part of the Eid celebrations in Tihar jail, Jail superintendent Rajesh Chauhan said, "We welcome these artists here today who have come all the way form Mumbai on our request."
Tihar jail DIG Mukesh Prsad also thanked the actors and appreciated the enthusiasm of the inmates on the occasion. "It was an attempt to reduce the depression among the inmates and the dullness in their lives. These events help in creating a better, positive and joyous environment for the inmates," Chauhan said.
Nikhil, who is playing the male lead in the 'Tamanchey' said, "We would look forward to visit this amazing place again, but we hope we don't see all of you here again. We pray to god that you get back with your families as soon as possible.
