If 2011 is the year of South Indian remakes, 2012 is going to be the year of sequels as there are many directors and producers who are going to launch their sequel movie next year. Now, Excel Entertainment has announced that they are ready to work on their next movie which will be Rock On 2. There was lot of speculation about whether the sequel of the movie will be made or not, but finally Excel Entertainment has come forward and has announced officially that they will go ahead with the sequel of Rock On.
Speaking more about the movie and plans for sequel, one of the source in Excel Entertainment said that there were plans for Rock On sequel but Excel Entertainment had various other movies on the list like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Don 2. However, now they are done with making these films and therefore they are looking for new scripts and the first to come in the line is Rock On 2. One of the main reasons why they would like to do Rock On 2 first is because they are emotionally attached to it. Rock On definitely got some good response from the audiences and therefore they want to continue the same story ahead.
It was also revealed that the main actors in the first movie will continue the script further and therefore Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli would return as band members. However, there is still no confirmation on who will fill in the space of Luke Kenny who died in the original version. Ritesh Sidhwani did confirm that Abhishek Kapoor that directed the original version will direct the sequel as well because of the knowledge of the script. However, the shooting for the movie will only begin after June 2012 when Abhishek is done with Talaash.
