Arjun Rampal gets nostalgic about Rock On
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Arjun Rampal revealed how he loved the script the very moment he had read it. Arjun, who played the memorable role of musician Joe Mascarenhas, said that Farhan Akhtar had approached him with the script of Rock On! while they were in Jodhpur at a magazine launch. That time, Farhan had said that the film’s premise would be about a rock band and that he (Farhan) believed that he (Arjun) would be a perfect fit for one of the lead characters named Joe. Arjun added that, since Joe’s character resonated with him so much (he plays awesome guitar in real life), that he was totally blown away.
