With Ramjas College celebrating its centennial year, it has seen quite a few musical nights. Starting from Papon and Astitva performing around late January this year to now, the star-studded cast of the upcoming film Rock On 2, a sequel to its hit musical predecessor, Rock On, which is all set to release on November 11.
The ‘Magik’ entourage brought to life their own on-screen roles as singers and musicians of the grunge-rock band, comprising of Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Shraddha Kapoor. Singing along to the tunes were scores of students, enjoying the much welcomed respite from the drudgery of oncoming exams. Farhan Akhtar also sang his old popular hits from the much beloved Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and the song Main Aisa Kyun Hu, which were definite crowd pleaser.
Shraddha, being the new entrant in the sequel, plays Jiah who is a rich girl who deviates from the beaten path in pursuit of becoming a singer, while Farhan and Arjun play the lead singer and lead guitarist respectively, the roles which they took on in its prequel.
It was quite the sensational night as college students from all over the University thronged the Ramjas grounds, most snapchatting away as the crowd hooted and cheered at the sight of the celebrities. Ramjas College has had a wonderfully eventful year when it comes to concerts, events, academic seminars, etc. as part of their grand year long celebration of it entering its 100th year on January 17th 2016, a feat to be immensely proud of. Farhan Akhtar said, “I am very happy to be here this evening. We know that the weather here was a little bit suspect but we can see all the people standing in the back. We are here to have fun with you all.”
At the end of the night, the trio wrapped up the concert, thanked the students for their overwhelming support and turnout. In sum, it was a promotion well executed.
