New Delhi: The sequel to superhit 2008 flick 'Rock On' is high on buzz. The star cast of 'Rock On 2' was quizzed over various questions at the trailer launch of the film, which took place in Mumbai last night.
So, from producer Ritesh Sidhwani to Farhan Akhtar, all had to answer some real questions popped up by the media.
Farhan was quizzed over his strained relationship with buddy filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, and if he misses having him on board. Farhan was quick to reply saying, "I believe every person and film has their own journey... But of course he was a part of the first film so, I do miss him. He was, is and will always remain a friend."
"Let's talk about Shujaat right now. He has made a wonderful film so, let's focus on him...," Farhan told the reporters.
The first part, which released in 2008, was about a rock band 'Magik' and its journey. The movie was loved for its music and the friendship of band members, played by Farhan, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli and Luke Kenny.
Farhan said the team has tried to match the emotional depth of the first film. "We have tried to portray the same emotional depth and layers as there were in 'Rock On'. The members of 'Magik' have gone through a lot individually in these six years and the characters of Shraddha and Shashank Arora bring 'Magik' back.
"The band realises that music is what binds its people and keep them together. So there's a lot of drama," the actor said. Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora are new additions to the cast of "Rock On 2", which is set to hit theatres on November 11.
'Rock On' was directed by Abhishek Kapoor whereas the sequel 'Rock On 2' is helmed by Shujaat Saudagar.
