Farhan Akhtar’s incredible acting abilities never cease to astound us. Farhan stands out as one of Bollywood’s top talents to watch, whether it is for his impeccable comic timing in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara or his contagious enthusiasm in Toofaan. While his acting abilities have always been evident in a variety of films, the movie Rock On!! introduced us to Farhan as a vocalist.
Today, August 29 marks 15th Anniversary of the film since its release at the box office. To commemorate the anniversary, Farhan Akhtar posts on his social media some vintage clips from the movie and its songs.
As Rock On completes 15 years, Farhan Akhtar expresses his gratitude.
As Rock On!! starring Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Luke Kenny, Prachi Desai, and Shahana Goswami, among others marked 15 years since its release today, Farhan Akhtar took to his Instagram handle to post a video that took fans on a trip down the memory lane.
Farhan posted some snippets from the film and its songs and remembering the iconic Magik he wrote, “15 years since Magik was created. Thank you to the fans who’ve kept it alive .. Rock On!! @prachidesai @rampal72 @purab_kohli @luke_kenny_live @shahanagoswami @gattukapoor @jaduakhtar @shankarehsaanloy @ritesh_sid @kassimjagmagia @vishalrr @excelmovies”
The post was showered with red heart emojis and fire emojis from fans. Farhan Akhtar’s sister director, Zoya Akhtar also dropped a string of red heart emojis to showcase her love for the film. One Instagram user commented, “I still remember writing the lyrics of the tracks ‘Rock On’, ‘Socha Hai’, ‘Sinbad’ on my notebook. For 90s kids, this was something else. A different kinda movie vibe, a different kinda music. Probably the most out of the box movie ever created in Bollywood.” One more user wrote, “What a great movie, finally brought some rock music to India mainstream.”
Another user wrote, “When will Magik reunite again? Eagerly waiting for Magik’s next concert,” and added a heart eyes emoji.
