Arjun Rampal, Farhan Akhtar team up for 'Rock On' sequel
Remember the cult musical movie ‘Rock On’ that released in 2008. It inspired the imagination of the entire generation and the songs such as ‘Yeh Tumhari Meri Baatein’, ‘Rock On – the title track’ and ‘Pichle Saat Dino Mein’ became instant hits among the youths. The music was created by the impeccable team of Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy. The movie narrated the life and story of friends who loved music and dreamt of making it big as a rock band. The movie introduced and established Farhan Akhtar as an actor, gave Arjun Rampal a hit and brought recognition to the director Abhishek Kapoor.
