The friendship and camaraderie which was formed during “Rock On” between Abhishek Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar turned sour by the time “Rock On!! 2” went on floors!
“Kai Po Che” Director Abhishek Kapoor was denied credit for his artistic contribution in developing the script of “Rock On!! 2” which is currently shooting in Shillong.
Abhishek Kapoor took the matter to Bombay High Court demanding that he should be given joint credit with Pubali Chowdhary as the co-writer of the Rock on 2. Finally on Friday, 23rd October, the High Court gave its verdict in the favour of director.
“I feel vindicated because this has been going on for a couple of years now. I have struggled with this, and eventually, I had to go to the court to get my credit. But now that it’s done, I’m feeling great” says Abhishek Kapoor.
“I had full faith in the country’s judiciary. I’m happy that they have given such an impeccable judgement. I’m also thankful to my lawyers who had faith in me, and who stood by me” adds Abhishek further.
The conflict started when Pubali got the sequel’s script registered with The Film Writers Association (FWA) under her name and denied Abhishek any credit.
Finally after the court’s verdict, Farhan’s production house has also agreed to mention his name as co- writer of the story.
