Bollywood hunk Arjun Rampal is set to play a rock star in Rock On which also stars Farhan Akhtar.. yeah, the director who directed one of the greatest hits of all time, Dil Chahta Hai.
Arjun has been on a high since his recent release Om Shanti Om.. and is taking his work rather seriously! He’s been learning to play guitar for the role.. even though he knows it pretty well.
His work in Om Shanti Om has got him due recognition and this phase is akin to his second coming. “I am happy. In fact, that’s my tagline these days!” he says.
So, Arjun’s been quite busy these days.. his next release will be The Last Lear with none other than Amitabh Bachchan and then he’s also working on Rituparno Ghosh’s next venture.
Talking about OSO, Arjun had some apprehensions before taking up the role.
“But Shah Rukh knocked some sense into me. He told me what this role was all about and how important it was for the film. And of course, Farah was an excellent support. She is fun to work with. In fact, working for OSO was like having a party with my closest friends.”
Party like a rock star!
Arjun, the first indication of his acting ability was noticed in the vintage Amitabh Bachchan starrer, Ek Ajnabee, where Arjun impressed in the company of the superstar of the millennium.
He’s been a hit since then, whether on or off screen.. and had more than his bit of fan-following.
