“I am a big fan of Rock On!! film and songs. Eight years back I had gone to watch Rock On!! with my brother and parents. I loved the film.

“I had [said then] that whenever a sequel of this movie will be made, then definitely I will act in the film,” she said at a press conference before Rock On 2!!’s music launch.

“This is a very different film of mine. I am nervous and excited to perform on stage,” she added.

Asked about his favourite song from the Rock On!! sequel, actor Farhan Akhtar said: “It is very difficult to say one favourite song. There is not just one favourite song in the movie.”

Actor and musician Shashank Arora (of Titli fame), one of the new cast members of Rock On!! 2, shared that he was excited about the upcoming film.

The upcoming musical drama film is directed by Shujaat Saudagar, produced by Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, and has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.

While Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, and Purab Kohli reprise their roles from Rock On!!, Kapoor will be sharing screen space opposite Akhtar, while Arora is a supporting character.

The film is scheduled to release in India on November 11.
