What comes to mind when one mentions two very important names of the film industry, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar together? Obviously, its super successful films like DIL CHAHTA HAI, LAKSHYA and DON-THE CHASE BEGINS AGAIN, where Ritesh was the producer and Farhan Akhtar the director.
However their upcoming venture ROCK ON witnesses a startling change. The good looking son of Javed Akhtar dons the mantle of an actor but Ritesh still remains the producer. The movie which will be Farhan's first film as an actor is directed by Abhishek Kapoor (Gattu) and it also co-stars Arjun Rampal, Luke Kenny, Sahana Goswami etc.
In a bid to promote Farhan's debut venture as an actor, the posters of ROCK ON have already been put up across 3000 cinemas worldwide and is drawing considerable interest among cine goers. The Excel Entertainment/Films production will however release only on the 29th of August 2008.
