 'Rock On!! 2' documents where things started from

New Delhi [India], Sept.22 (ANI): Looks like 'Rock On!! 2' have a lot in store, other than its double energy; the film has a documentary shot separately called ' Rock On Revisited.'

This documentary shows the journey since 'Rock On!!' and encompasses each character's ride from the film, which is wrapped in a video clip.

The 15-minutes documentary also features how impactful the film was on the audience and on the group of individuals who came together to pursue their Hindi rock band, 'Magik.'

In the video, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Prachi Desai, producer Ritesh Sidhwani and music directors Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy shared their experiences about how the film, which bagged National Awards for 'Best Supporting Actor '( Arjun Rampal) and 'Best Feature Film in Hindi,' became a movement.

However, the makers still have not decided when they will release the documentary.

On this note, Farhan said, "We decided we had to go back to how all it started. You have to follow what you are very excited about. There is no choice. Today, with Rock On!! 2, we have the opportunity to push that energy a bit more. It was in 2007 that Rock On!! director Abhishek Kapoor came up to me while I was with friends in a South Mumbai bar and told me he was very keen to cast me in film about a rock band as the lead singer in that band, Aditya Shroff. It wasn't something that I hadn't considered at that point - acting or singing. The responsibility of fronting a film was the greatest challenge. It's not as easy as people imagine it to be."

"We all worked at it and tried to get ourselves as close to performing the songs in a way, that it really felt to us as actors and to the audience, when they were watching, that these people are really playing and it's not mock-stuff. You can't pretend to be a lead singer. I have been touring with my band independently now and the music really did catch on, but it's incredible to see the recall value of the first film's songs. The minute the songs start from the album, the energy of that crowd just completely changes. With the sequel, we have that opportunity to push that more and do more concerts now as people are more familiar with the songs of the last film," he added.

Further speaking about 'Rock On!!'s National Award-win, the 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' actor said, "Yes that felt amazing. There have been so many wonderful stories after our ' Rock On!!' story where people told us how they came together and formed rock bands and became aware about rock music. That also forms a part of the documentary." (ANI)
