Talented actor Farhan Akhtar got enough recognition with Rock On which released eight years ago. Now the team is back with the sequel of the film titled Rock On 2. Shujaat Saudagar directed the film and Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Prachi Desai and Shashank Arora played the lead roles. Rock On 2 has been produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani on Excel Entertainments banner. Rock On 2 released all over on Friday all over and the film received poor response from the audience.
The film failed to live up the expectations and witnessed poor occupancy across the country. Rock On 2 collected Rs 2.02 crores across the country on its first day which has been disappointing. Despite of the huge publicity, the film failed to attain decent occupancy. Modi’s currency demonetization had a huge impact on the film and the poor reviews too helped the film get low occupancy. The movie has been made on a budget of Rs 45 crores and trade analysts predict that it is quite difficult to recover the investments.
