A rocking EncoreFarhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli to come back again with the sequel to their 2008 blockbuster Rock On!!
Katrina Kaif shedded her miss goody two shoes image to don the ripped denims and a guitar. Following her grunge rock avatar, Ranbir Kapoor is ready with Rockstar. And now, the original rock boys (at least the ones who made the term popular in Bollywood) are back for their second gig. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment have asked Abhishek Kapoor to direct the sequel to the 2008 blockbuster Rock On!!
According to sources, the two leading actors of the film - Farhan Akhtar and Arjun Rampal were ready to start a sequel right after the film released in 2008. However, director Abhishek Kapoor had his reservations back then.
Kapoor had told a news daily, "I don't want to rush into a sequel just because it is a commercially viable thing to do. The sequel has to stand on its own feet and not just be a carryover of the original."
The following three years seem to have helped him change his mind. "Now the entire cast and crew are ready. Same applies to the script. The film will be called Rock On!! 2," revealed a source close to the film.
Kapoor was reportedly working on the adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's latest novel The 3 Mistakes Of My Life and another original screenplay, a few months back. "Abhishek Kapoor is now totally focused on Rock On!! sequel. He wants it to be as big as the first," added the source.
According to industry sources, the original cast of the film will be carried forward to the sequel. Farhan Akhtar will still be Adi, Arjun Rampal will be Joe and Purab Kohli will be KD.
However, Luke Kenny (Rob Nancy), the fourth member of the band named Magik, who died in the end of the film will obviously not be a part of the sequel. Prachi Desai and Shahana Goswami are also predicted to be an integral part of the film.
