The lead actress of Excel Entertainment’s 'Rock On 2' has been in the news for quite some time now. While the rest of the cast has been the same, a lot of discussion was happening regarding its leading lady. And after much contemplation, the makers of 'Rock On 2' have zeroed down on 'Aashiqui 2' actress Shraddha Kapoor to play the female lead.
'Rock On' is a cult classic and it had great demand for a sequel. After the success of their first sequel 'Don 2', Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are now geared up for the sequel of Rock On, which is said to go on-floors this year. The film will feature the epic trio from the first part; Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli.
Shraddha plays a young girl who joins the band and brings about a lot of changes. She has a beautiful voice and is also going to be singing in the film. Interestingly, If the reports were to be believed, Alia Bhatt was initially being considered for this role.
Confirming the news, an elated Shraddha says, "I am extremely excited to be a part of 'Rock On 2'. I am a big fan of the first part and and love the character I am playing in the sequel. It is a role that involves singing and live performances and that very few roles give you a chance to do.”
Well, now we definitely can't wait for the film to begin!
