After the trailer of Abhishek Kapoor's directorial venture ROCK ON starring Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, Purab Kohli, Sahana Goswami and Luke Kenny in leads was shown with SARKAR RAJ screenings last week, the film is gaining an important eye from trade circles.
According to the latest buzz there have been a lot of distributors and business houses whose interest in the film has zoomed. It is heard that the makers Excel Entertainment have received various new offers for all rights of the film with the offered figure going as high as 45 crores. For a film with relatively new faces (apart from Arjun Rampal) and DIL CHAHTA HAI fame director Farhan Akhtar making his 'debut' as an 'actor', it's a nice sign for everyone associated with the film.
The film revolves around 4 young boys who put together the greatest band this country had ever seen but never make it. Ten years hence fate conspires to bring them together again and set them on a journey back to where they left off. A soul searching pilgrimage into their past.
The film is scheduled to release on 29th August 2008.
