Mumbai: Actress Shraddha Kapoor says it’s a dream come true to star in “Rock On 2” and getting a chance to sing her own songs in the musical drama is like icing on the cake.
Shraddha is among the new additions to the cast of “Rock On”, which is now returning for a sequel. The 29-year-old actress said the 2008 film has been one of her favourites and she feels lucky that the makers signed her for the second part.
“I am exploring singing. I am liking this. Rarely does an actor get a chance to sing in his or her movie so, I feel extremely fortunate to have got this opportunity,” she told reporters here at the film’s trailer launch.
The actress, who has sung a few Bollywood numbers, said it was challenging to dabble with rock music for “Rock On 2”.
“Rock music is a new genre for me as a singer and it was challenging. But as I am a fan of this kind of music, it was special too that I got to sing these tracks.”
Shraddha and lead actor Farhan Akhtar also performed to a few numbers from the film’s album at the event. The actress said she has realised that for a musician there’s nothing better than performing live.
“I always heard from musicians that nothing gives them more kick than performing live. Now that I have done that, I can vouch for it. It feels amazing,” she said.
Also starring Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, Purab Kohli and Shashank Arora (‘Titli’ fame), the film will arrive in theatres on November 11. It has been helmed by debutant Shujat Saudagar.
