Actor Farhan Akhtar is set to visit Shillong on October 21 as part of a promotional tour for Rock On 2. Most of the film Rock On 2, was shot in and around Meghalaya. It was also mentioned by the Excel Movies that their visit is part of their strategy to amplify local/regional press while they are on the promotional tour, considering the long standing association with Meghalaya Tourism and the support provided by the team. A press conference addressed by Farhan Akhtar and others will be held in Ri Kynjai on October 21 at 2 pm.
In Rock On 2, the main character decides to walk out of the big city and move into the hills in order to find peace and a path for rediscovery. Shillong apparently was the perfect fit for this script. Also the track ‘Ho Kiw chalo chalo’ aims to bring the Shillong music scene and bands into mainstream Bollywood music. Usha Uthup gave vocals for the song, along with Summersalt vocalist Kit Shangpliang who sings in Khasi.
