Rock On 2 trailer is out and it is fantastic. From music to the mood, from performances to the vibe — well, lets just say it has Magik.
Purab Kohli, Arjun Rampal and Farhan Akhtar are back together and they have Shraddha Kapoor and Shashank Arora giving them company. But the path to musical success is one strewn with tears and fights, as we saw in Rock On and it is no different this time.
Farhan is living away from his family, a man haunted by his past. Shraddha makes great music but she can’t finish it. Her father doesn’t approve, can that be the reason?
These two come together and the result — do we really have to say it — is Magik. The trailer includes Rock On anthem and it is so much more edgier than what we heard last time. The visuals are striking too. Long after you have seen the trailer, you will remember the song and the video footage.
The fact that the sequel is set in the North East is intriguing. Is it just the setting of the film or a character in itself? It has been eight years since Rock On came out. Its original fans are older, its new fans are thirsting for something new. We are sure the film can satisfy them all. And make great music in the bargain.
Directed by Shujaat Saudagar, Rock On 2 has music by Shankar-Ehsan-Loy. The film starring Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Purab Kohli, Arjun Rampal, Sahana Goswani, Prachi Desai is all set to release on November 11.

While the first film is about four guys who created Magik, this film is about how the journey of ‘Magik’ continues as young musicians join the band.

Shashank Arora on Rock On 2
As Rock On!! has created a benchmark, I felt immense pressure to deliver the best. But as everyone treated me like family, I worked comfortably and tried my best to contribute to the film.
Prachi Desai on Rock On 2
I made my Bollywood debut with Rock On!! It’s been eight years and now I am a part of the sequel. My character goes through an internal conflict and emotional journey in this film. The character has matured and has a new look. I hope people like it.
Shraddha Kapoor on Rock On 2
Though I sung before for my earlier films, this is the first time I am singing rock songs. I took vocal training to adapt the style correctly. Thankfully, people like our songs and I am happy for it. On the other hand, the film is an emotional journey. My character is very interesting.
