For a while, the crew of Rock On have been contemplating on a sequel but even before the film went on floor, it has created a controversy. Apparently, the writer of the sequel Pubali Chaudhuri has been accused of denying credit to the other writer Abhishek Kapoor.
Apparently, Pubali Chaudhuri, who had registered the script with The Film Writers Association, claimed that the script for the sequel was solely created by her. Abhishek Kapoor, who was also the director of the 2008 film Rock On was miffed when he wasn't given any credit and now it seems, that he has registered a complaint with the association for the same. Apparently, it seems that Abhishek was the one to have conceptualized the story and later, Pubali shaped it into a script. So the filmmaker is of the opinion that the two of them should deserve credit.
Though Pubali did not comment on the accusations that were made against her, she did mention that the dispute is true but she cannot divulge any details since the case is still ongoing in the association.
Produced under the banner Excel Entertainment, Rock On had Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal in lead roles accompanied by Purab Kohli, Luke Kenny, Shahana Goswami and marked the debut of Prachi Desai in Bollywood.
