Speculations are rife that the director to the first instalment was shown the door by the producer in order to rope in the lead actors
Farhan Akhtar and Arjun Rampal have been finalized for the sequel of Rock On and the actors will reprise their roles from the first installment along with Purab Kohli. However Riteish Sidhwani, the producer, confirmed that Abhishek Kapoor will not be directing the film. The sequel would be directed by Shujaat Saudagar of Boot Polish Films.
A little birdie tells us that Abhishek Kapoor was shown the door in order to rope in Farhan and Arjun as the two were not keen to work in the sequel, if Gattu was directing it. We still don’t know the full story, but it surely seems like Gattu is having a tough time striving in the industry. After having a spat with cousin Ekta Kapoor, now it is the Rock On makers.
Well, what can we say! All we can do, is hope that the fight does not affect the final outcome of the movie. After all, we loved Rock On!! and are eagerly waiting for the sequel. Aren’t you peeps?
