“Hum honge, lights hogi, ek huge audience hogi … aur hogi music jiske har beat mein, har note mein zindagi hogi … zindagi (We’ll be there, there’ll be lights, there’ll be a huge audience … and there’ll be music in which every beat, every note there’ll be life … life).” Thats the kind of aura The Magik had left in the hearts and minds of the people with their music 8 years ago. But then they vanished in thin air and there was no sign of them anywhere. But after a long wait of all these years, The Magik is coming back to the stage with a bang to rock and relive their magic once again on screen this winter. Yes, we are talking about Rock On 2, the sequel to the 2008 hit musical drama Rock On, which took audiences on a roller-coaster ride of friendship and emotions.
On Friday, the cast of Rock On 2 launched the first poster of their upcoming movie in Mumbai and they are all set to rock on the big screen. The poster featured the lead actors with a tagline, “Every generation finds its voice.” So without taking too much time, let us introduce you to the characters of this rock band called The Magik which now has some new valuable addition to it.
