<p>Abhishek Kapoor’s 2008 musical drama “Rock On!!” was a box office hit and received positive reviews from critics. The film had a big impact on viewers and included an ensemble cast that included Luke Kenny, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, and Farhan Akhtar. Even though Akhtar had a well-established career as a director because of his work on successful films like “Dil Chahta Hai,” “Don,” and “Lakshya,” he let Abhishek Kapoor direct “Rock On!!” without interfering.</p>

<p>Speaking with Siddharth Kannan, Abhishek said that Farhan was the first to see the movie. He was in Cannes, not in the town, and Farhan was overjoyed to see the cut. He loved and respected Farhan so much that it meant the world to him. He’s taught him a great deal. And he didn’t get involved at all while he was filming the movie. Even though he was aware that he was the producer, he allowed him to do whatever he pleased and never stood in the way of him expressing his desires for the movie. When he finally viewed the movie, he contacted him to say, “I saw the movie, and I loved it.” To him, it meant everything.<br />
After ‘Rock On!!’ had both critical and commercial success, there was a lot of expectation for a follow-up, with many anticipating Abhishek Kapoor’s return as director. But when ‘Rock On 2’ was revealed, Shujaat Saudagar was in charge of it instead. Abhishek said that he decided to leave the project because of arguments with Farhan.</p>
<p>‘Rock On 2’ was not entirely written by Abhishek, according to him. He was working on the framework for it, but he and Farhan Akhtar couldn’t agree on how to go. They chose to go on with someone else since they both thought that this approach was preferable.<br />
Following “Rock On!” Abhishek Kapoor directed a number of noteworthy movies, including “Kai Po Che!” which was Sushant Singh Rajput’s feature debut. He also directed “Kedarnath,” “Fitoor,” and “Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui.”</p>
