Rock On! 2 will be a more mature story: Purab Kohli


Actor Purab Kohli feels the upcoming second instalment of “Rock On!!” will be a more “mature” film as the stars in the movie have evolved over the years. “Rock On!!”, which released in 2008, was about a music band of four boys, played by Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Kohli and Luke Kenny.

The 37-year-old actor says in the gap of eight years between the two instalments, a lot has happened in the personal lives of the actors. “It (the experience) has been great. It just picked up from eight years back so it is really quite fantastic. In eight years, a lot happened in our personal life. We are more mature as people.

So that quality will perhaps reflect in our characters too. People are in for a more mature ‘Rock On!! 2‘,” Kohli told reporters here last night. “Rock On!! 2” is set to hit theatres on November 11. While the first was directed by Abhishek Kapoor, the sequel has been helmed by Shujat Saudagar. Its cast has an addition in form of actress Shraddha Kapoor.

Kohli says there is a lot of buzz surrounding the movie but the audience need to wait for the trailer. “Everybody gets excited when we talk about Rock on. There is a ‘charcha’ of part two since a long time. We all are excited for it. The film releases in November so I think people need to wait a little bit more (for the trailer).” The actor was speaking at Cuddles Foundation’s fourth annual fundraiser, ‘Meher IV’.
