Abhishek Kapoor will not direct ‘Rock On’ sequel

The film that marked the debut of Farhan Akhtar as an actor – ‘Rock On’, is all set for a sequel. The film will retain its previous male leads – Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli, however the buzz is that the film will not be directed by Abhishek Kapoor, who directed the first part. Supposedly, Abhishek has been busy with his future projects and doesn’t have time to dedicate to the ‘Rock On’ sequel. Ad filmmaker Shujaat Saudagar has been roped in instead to direct the much awaited musical. However, the details of the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
The sequel is slated to go on floors in January 2015.
