Abhishek and Farhan ready to ‘rock on’ again
Abhishek Kapoor and Farhan buried their differences and have joined hands for the sequel of 2008 released movie ‘Rock On’. ‘Rock On’ was directed by Abhishek Kapoor and he casted Farhan Akhtar in the lead role. The movie marked the acting debut for Farhan Akhtar.
Abhishek Kapoor has finalized the script for sequel of ‘Rock On’. The movie will be co-produced by Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment. And like the first part, in this movie also, Farhan will sing a couple of songs. Abhishek has convinced him to sing for the movie.
A source close to the movie said, “It is a big responsibility to take a successful film ahead. Abhishek has been working on the script for some time and he has finally managed to lock a draft.”
Farhan and Abhishek were good friends. Their friendship went off track after Farhan opted out from the ambitious project of Abhishek. It was ‘Kai Po Che’ and Abhishek wanted to cast his multi talented friend in the character of Ishaan. When Farhan dropped this movie, Abhishek casted Sushant Singh Rajput. Farhan later even avoided the premiere of this movie which was attended by whose’s who from Bollywood.
Farhan then wanted to bury the differences. He made an attempt by congratulating the team of ‘Kai Po Che’ on Twitter. He also attended the success party of this movie which was thrown a few days after the release of the movie. At the party, both Farhan and Abhishek were seen talking to each other for long. An insider revealed, “At the success party of ‘Kai Po Che’, they both had a long chat about working together again. Now the project is finally taking shape and like in the previous film, Farhan will be singing a few numbers in ‘Rock On 2’ as well. The other casting of the project is still under wraps.”
Apart from ‘Rock On 2’, Abhishek is also making a movie ‘Fitoor’. The movie will cast Sushant Singh Rajput and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. The movie will go on floor in early 2014.
Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial debut movie was ‘Aryan’ which was released in 2006. He received critical acclamation for this movie. However, he made his entry in Bollywood as an actor. He acted in ‘Uff!Yeh Mohabbat’ opposite Twinkle Khanna. He then appeared in two more movies but finally went on to become a director.
