Rock On 2 ended up being a total disaster at the box office as there was no buzz, hype and craze among the people regarding the movie. The songs were terrible and the story lacked substance. The trailer of the film was also boring and failed to evoke any excitement among the masses.

Javed Akhtar opened up about Rock On 2's failure and blamed demonetisation as the sole cause for its pathetic run at the box office. "Rock on 2 was obviously affected by demonetisation. It released days after the decision was taken and failed to do well because 84 percent of the currency was banned and people were struggling."

He further commented, "Well I suppose the buying capacity and the spending capacity of an average citizen has become a bit shy that's for sure."

Well, in a way Javed Akhtar is right! Demonetisation has caused people to hold on to their hard earned cash as they prefer to use it for their daily expenses. On the other hand, Rock On 2 lacks the appeal of its prequel Rock On and that too is a major cause for the films failure.
