Rock On 2 to begin after Talaash

After months of speculations, it is finally confirmed. Rock On 2, sequence to immensely popular Rock On, is definitely happening. The film is
all set to go on floors next year and would be directed by Abhishek Kapoor, the man who had originally directed Rock On. Incidentally, this is the
only film which Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, producers at Excel Entertainment, have finalised before announcing their newer set of films next

"Yes, Rock On 2 is on", confirms a source connected to the production house, "In fact pre-production of the film is already on and Abhishek too is
working on bringing this one on floors. Though he was also working on Chetan Bhagat's The 3 Mistakes Of My Life to bring it on celluloid, it would now
be Rock On 2 first. We begin shooting next year."

Ever since Rock On (2008) turned into a good hit and started finding cult status amongst the youth, there was pressure on the makers to bring out a
sequel soon. However, they had commissioned work on other films as well due to which Rock On 2 had to be put on backburner.

"Last year they had to get Karthik Calling Karthik going while this year was particularly busy with Game, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Don
. Each of them has been a very big film for Farhan and Ritesh while Talaash too has taken over a year to be made. Now that the Aamir Khan starrer
has been finalised for June next year, there are plans being finalised for other films. First to come would be Rock On 2 as there is a good emotional
attachment to the subject as well. Abhishek too is all excited to begin work as he didn't pick any other film in the last three years despite good offers
coming his way", the source continues.

Though the makers would be soon making a formal announcement around the cast, it is by default that Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli would return
as the band members. There is still suspense around who would fill the shoes of Luke Kenny as the character played by him had died in the original.

When contacted, Ritesh confirmed that Rock On 2 was indeed on. "Yes, that's the film we bring on floors next and Abhishek would be directing it. As
for the rest, we need some time as it has been quite hectic for over a year now and we don't see much respite till Talaash is released. In fact
shooting of Rock On 2 would also begin only after June next year while the other films would be announced thereafter."
