The CEO and CFO who are also Executive directors of the company and both are holding 25% stake individually.

No, the audit committee is supposed to be a composition of 'outside independent directors' so they can't be a part of it.

Audit committee shall consist of a minimum of three directors with independent directors forming a majority as per Section 177 (2) of the Companies Act, 2013. So number of members in Audit Committee should be capped properly so that independent directors will form the majority in the said committee.
