But then Rock On came along, and the actor latched on to it leaving the offbeat film in the dark. Now after nine years, it is reported that the film is all set to hit the theatres in 2017.
According to a report from DNA, a source was quoted as saying, "An offbeat film, it would also mark the debut of director Anand Surapur, had it released then. However, with no definite plan for it, especially in India, it languished in obscurity for years. Rock On!! came and went. It is now being revived and a release date is planned (March 10)."
