Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal will shoot for ‘Rock On!! 2’ next year!

Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor is still working on the script, but the excitement is building…

For all those wondering when the second installment of Rock On!! will go on the floors, we have good news. Abhishek Kapoor, who just wrapped up the shoot of Kai Po Che, his new film inspired by Chetan Bhagat’s The 3 Mistakes Of My Life, recently said: “We are working on the script of Rock On!! 2 right now. It will have the same team with some new characters coming in. I am happy and excited about it, hopefully by next year it will go on floors.”

We told you a while ago that Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli continue to play their respective characters in the new version of the friendship drama involving four rock band members. This time, Sharman Joshi is rumoured to be joining them.

Today Rock On!! is a film that will go down well in the history of Bollywood cinema, but making it was a cumbersome task for Abhishek. The actor-turned-filmmaker approached a gamut of star-actors, but none of them were keen to be part of the multi-starrer. Even the fact that Farhan was launching his acting career with the film didn’t help him get any of the biggies on board.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the same star-actors Abhishek approached then are now regretting their decision to not do the film. But Farhan and Arjun must be thanking them, ‘coz Rock On!! rocked the crowd and the actors’ careers went a notch higher.
