Movie-goers are putting their faith in the 2008 film's intriguing plot and the spectacular handling of rock genre to go for Rock On 2
"There were offers to play the role of a musician but I did not want to do it. I did not want to do it (musician role) because I had done it (in Rock On!!) beyond my expectations. I had surpassed the expectations. There was always a talk about Rock On 2, so I wanted to preserve it," said Arjun
Udja Re is purely Shraddha's show as none of the other principle cast - Farhan, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli or new addition Shashank Arora feature in the song
"I am looking forward to performing at the Jammin' Live concert along with all the Jammin' artistes," said Rahman, who is also the co-founder of Qyuki - a multi-platform media network across digital, live, TV and film
Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor tweaked a song from their film to wish everyone in a rather cute way
Talking about the story of the film Farhan said, "Being the sequel of Rock On!! the story of the film revolves around the earlier characters but with different twist and turns. It is the continuous journey of the band - Magik."
Shraddha Kapoor, who plays aspiring singer Jia, auditions and finds a spot in the band. Together, they aim to create a stir in the world of music but hurdles keep cropping up in their way - there's a story behind Shraddha's stage fright and Farhan is haunted by his past experience
"There were multiple emotions in me on stage there. The feeling of my first live concert performance, for my film Rock On 2 and seeing my most nurtured dreams come true was all so overwhelming that I just couldn't control my emotions. I can't explain that feeling in words," she said
Rock On 2, a sequel to the 2008 hit, has added Shraddha Kapoor to its cast but the Magik performing Jaago appears to be pre-Shraddha. Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli perform on guitar and drums as Joe and KD respectively. As the YouTube description reveals, this is Magik's first performance since the death of keyboardist Rob, played by Luke Kenny, in the first film.
Aditya, Joe and KD lost band member Rob in the previous film but they've gained a new voice in Rock On 2 - Shraddha Kapoor stars as singer Jiah, apparently being mentored by Farhan Akhtar's character, Aditya
"I think everybody amazingly well fits into the roles they are doing and I truly believe that we are meant for it. I don't think anybody else could be have been Joy or anybody could have been Jiya or Adi or Sakshi, and you have to watch the film to believe what each one brings to it," said Prachi Desai
"Having a film on those lines would be a lot of fun. I don't know why anyone hasn't thought about that. Today, Bollywood is getting so much more experimental, why should women be behind," Prachi said.
