Farhan Akhtar begins shooting ‘Rock On 2!!’ in ‘rock capital’ Shillong


After months of preparations, Farhan Akhtar’s much anticipated musical drama ‘Rock On 2!!’ has finally gone on floors in Meghalaya capital Shillong on Tuesday, October 6. The shooting process began with ‘scene 9’.

Ritesh Sidhwani who is the co-owner of Excel Entertainment along with Farhan, took to Twitter to share a picture from the sets of the film.

“And we Rock N Roll #RockOn2 in #shillong,” he posted along with the image of the movie’s clapperboard.

Farhan Akhtar along with director Shujaat Saudagar arrived in the picturesque hill station on October 4, two days prior to the schedule to soak in the environment. A regional daily also reported that Farhan shook a leg to the tune of ‘Submerge’ and absorbed the electronic dance experience.

The film will be shot in several locations in the state over a period of two months. The script of the film demands scenic locations and Shillong fits the bill. Moreover, the city is also known as the ‘rock capital of India’. Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma was also keen on the film to be shot in the state, the report added.

‘Rock On 2!!’ is the sequel of the popular 2008 movie ‘Rock On!!’ which starred Farhan, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli and Prachi Desai, all of who will reprise their roles in the second part. Shraddha Kapoor, Sonu Sood and Shashank Arora are the new additions in the sequel film.

Shraddha, who will play a singer in the movie, will be singing for herself in ‘Rock On 2!!’.

Produced by Excel Entertainment, the release date of the movie has not been announced yet, but it is expected to hit theatres next year.
