Farhan Akhtar is prepping up for the release of his upcoming rock musical, Rock On 2, but seems like he already has some plans for the next part. Yes, unlike the sequel to 2008 film, which took eight long years to finally come on screen, you can expect the third edition of Rock On 3 sooner as the actor of the film has found an apt cast, who will also be singing in the film. On November 8, Farhan took to his Twitter account to announce the vocalist of the third edition of Rock On and it is none other than the evergreen Anil Kapoor.
Anil Kapoor had shared a short video in which the actor can be seen cycling on the streets of Mumbai. What’s different? Well, the video is a Dubsmash of Rock On 2 title song – Rock On Revisited. Of course, it is the actor’s attempt to promote his friend’s film; the two had shared the screen in 2014 release Dil Dhadakne Do. Coincidently, Anil posted the video after Ranveer Singh’s Dubsmash on ‘Picchle Saat Dino’ from Rock On original version. So, was Anil competing with him? Ranveer played Anil’s son in Zoya Akhtar film.

On the work front, Farhan’s film Rock On 2 will release on November 11 while the 59-year-old actor is prepping up for the shoot of Mubaraka, along with his nephew Arjun Kapoor. This will be the first time that the duo will be sharing the screen space with each other. If reports are to be believed, Arjun Kapoor will be playing a double role in the film. Mubaraka, which is directed by Anees Bazmi, also stars Ileana D’cruz and is scheduled to release next year.
