Fortunate to sing in 'Rock On 2': Shraddha Kapoor
Shraddha is among the new additions to the cast of "Rock On", which is now returning for a sequel.
The 29-year-old actress said the 2008 film has been one of her favourites and she feels lucky that the makers signed her for the second part.
"I am exploring singing. I am liking this. Rarely does an actor get a chance to sing in his or her movie so, I feel extremely fortunate to have got this opportunity," she told reporters here at the film's trailer launch.
The actress, who has sung a few Bollywood numbers, said it was challenging to dabble with rock music for "Rock On 2".
"Rock music is a new genre for me as a singer and it was challenging. But as I am a fan of this kind of music, it was special too that I got to sing these tracks."
Shraddha and lead actor Farhan Akhtar also performed to a few numbers from the film's album at the event.
The actress said she has realised that for a musician there's nothing better than performing live.
"I always heard from musicians that nothing gives them more kick than performing live. Now that I have done that, I can vouch for it. It feels amazing," she said.
Also starring Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai, Purab Kohli and Shashank Arora ('<g data-gr-id="37">Titli</g>' fame), the film will arrive in theatres on November 11. It has been helmed by debutant Shujat Saudagar.
