Work Hard, Party Harder Was The Mantra Of Rock On!! 2 Team
When you are making a film whose heart and soul is music, it’s impossible to not have fun while working on it. And this is exactly what happened with the team of Rock On!! 2.
After 8 long years, when the Rock On!! troupe came back together to recreate ‘Magik’ it was not only exciting for the cast to reconcile their bond but it also spelt a lot of fun.
Helmed by Shujaat Saudagar, Rock On!! 2 brings together its old cast – Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, Purab Kohli, and Farhan Akhtar along with a new addition – Shraddha Kapoor and is as much a musical extravaganza as its prequel.
A major chunk of the film is shot in the scenic valley of Meghalaya and while rehearsing for the movie which has energetic numbers like ‘Jaago’,’ Udja Re’, ‘You know What I mean’, among others, the cast couldn’t help but have full on dhamaal.
Every day the unit of Rock On!! 2, post the shoot would sit down together to jam and rehearse for the next day of the shoot. Needless to say, the live music combined with the beautiful surroundings and an enthusiastic team would inadvertently end up into a party session every night.
"In Meghalaya, we stayed in Ri Kynjai, which is a little out of Shillong. Set on the slopes of the valley leading down to the lake, it was a wonderful view. We jammed most evenings and in my room as the drum kit, which is hard to move around, was installed there. The valley would fill up with our music of Rock On!! 2, and every rehearsal evening inevitably ended up in a party,” said the Rock On!! 2 actor Purab Kohli.
Their jamming sessions followed by the after-party became so popular in Meghalaya that one fine day even the Meghalaya chief minister, Mukul Sangma joined them for their sessions. He apparently even grabbed a guitar and sang with Shraddha and Farhan at the gathering.
Who says you can’t party at work?
