Not long ago, it was being said that Excel Entertainment were keen on signing Alia Bhatt for the sequel to 2008۪s Rock On۪. Shraddha Kapoor۪s name was also in the mix for the female lead role. However, now it seems Bhatt has had to back out of the project.
Bhatt, who was a popular choice because of her singing abilities too, is apparently too busy to devote any time to the project. She has Vikas Bahl۪s Shandaar۪ on the cards as well as Ayan Mukerji۪s next which will see her opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
It is for this reason that reports are now suggesting that Bhatt is no longer in the running for the film. In fact, Excel Entertainment are thought to be looking for a newcomer for the role now.
