After Farhan Akhtar and Arjun Rampal's musical flick "Rock On!" turned out to be a blockbuster in 2008, the makers are set to come up with its sequel.

However, this time the film will also have Shraddha Kapoor, which means she will lend her soothing voice along with Akhtar.

But the buzz is that the "ABCD 2" actress and Akhtar will not be like other Bollywood on-screen pair, as they will not be seen romancing in the film.

"It's not a love story between Farhan and Shraddha at all. She's just the band's newest member who sings along with Farhan. That's it," the DNA quoted a source.

"Shraddha's role is more pivotal than Prachi's. The film will be more about the rock band and will feature more members, including these two," the insider further said.

Hence, Prachi Desai will continue to play Akhtar's wife in "Rock On 2" as well.

"Rock On!" (2008), directed by Abhishek Kapoor, had turned out to be a huge success at the box office and although the makers had decided for its sequel then, things got delayed due to reasons best known to them.

"Rock On! 2" will have the original cast Akhtar, Rampal, Prachi and Purab Kohli, apart from Shraddha.

Earlier, the buzz was that Alia Bhatt had been approached to play the lead role in the film. Rumours milled that she had given a verbal consent, but later backed off. However, after back-to-back hits of the "Ek Villain" actress, she is expected to do justice to this role too.

The sequel will be shot in Shillong and Mumbai and is expected to go on floors this September and release in August 2016.

Shraddha is currently busy shooting for "Baaghi" opposite Tiger Shroff. Coming out of her glamorous roles, she will be showing her "grey side" and will also perform action sequences in the film.
