Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor’s upcoming movie ‘Rock On 2’ is all set to hit the theatres tomorrow. So far, the trailer of the movie has received rave views from the audience and people are praising Shraddha Kapoor’s appearance of a musical rebel in ‘Rock On 2’.
However, actor Arjun Rampal, who plays a key role in ‘Rock on 2’, has confessed that he was a little sceptical about Shraddha’s inclusion in the movie which is a sequel to 2008 much acclaimed movie ‘Rock On’.
The makers of ‘Rock On 2’ has reprised the entire cast of its prequel with Shraddha and Shashank Ghosh being the two new additions to the team.
Arjun, while talking to an entertainment portal, stated that he was concerned about how Shraddha being a young actor would fit in with the rest of the cast given the fact that she is from different generation. He confessed that before working with the ‘Ek Villain’ actress, Rampal had not seen any of her movies or interacted with her.
However, it was only after he heard her vocals, Arjun Rampal got impressed with Shraddha. The ‘Deewanapan’ actor asserted that Shraddha was the perfect choice for the role of a girl who comes from a different generation and joins the band to find her way.
In fact, Arjun was all praises for the young diva saying, “It's amazing how this new generation of kids is so focused. She is the perfect band member. She has unbelievable screen and stage presence and is super confident without being overconfident”.
Interestingly, Shraddha Kapoor has been a huge fan of Arjun Rampal, Farhan Akhtar starrer ‘Rock On’. The actress, in one of her interviews, has admitted that she was ardent to be a part of the sequel soon after the release of ‘Rock On’.
‘Rock On 2’ also features Purab Kohli and Prachi Desai in key roles and is helmed by Shujaat Saudagar.
