Shrad­dha Kapoor (right) is ready to take her singing pas­sion to another level. The ac­tor is train­ing in rock mu­sic for her next film, Rock On 2.

The 26-year-old made her singing de­but last year with the un­plugged ver­sion of the song Gal­liyan in Ek Vil­lain and later lent her voice for Vishal Bhard­waj’s Haider.

Af­ter the re­lease of her latest film, she recorded the un­plugged ver­sion of Bezubaan Phir Se.

Shrad­dha will be train­ing pro­fes­sion­ally for the first time for the se­quel of rock mu­si­cal drama, Rock On. “I like singing but I never trained be­fore Rock On 2 hap­pened. For this film, I am train­ing in rock genre,” says Shrad­dha, adding that she is very ex­cited to work with ac­tor-film­maker Farhan Akhtar. “I am very ex­cited to work with Farhan. I have been a fan of his movies, di­rec­tion, act­ing and voice. He is one of the most tal­ented, fear­less and in­spir­ing peo­ple we have in the in­dus­try to­day. I am ex­tremely happy about do­ing a film with him,” she says.

Shrad­dha vis­ited North East for a recce with the film’s crew and has al­ready started work­ing on the film’s mu­sic with Farhan, who be­came a singing sen­sa­tion af­ter Rock On. “Farhan and I were prac­tis­ing a song re­cently. It was lovely. He is so funny and so pas­sion­ate about what he does,” she says. The se­quel will also see Ar­jun Ram­pal, Prachi De­sai, Sha­hana Goswami repris­ing their roles. Di­rec­tor Ab­hishek Kapoor will not re­turn for the se­quel.

I never trained in mu­sic be­fore pre­par­ing for Rock On 2. I’m now train­ing in rock genre Shrad­dha Kapoor, ac­tor
