Actress Alia Bhatt, who has the industry running after her for dates is apparently so busy that she had to let go of Rock On 2, the sequel to 2008 musical by Abhishek Kapoor. She chose Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab over it. According to reports, screen space in both the films was the deciding factor for this super talented actress to pick Udta Punjab instead of the musical sequel. Udta Punjab and Rock On 2 are supposed to start around same time in 2015, thus unable to commit her dates to both Alia, after much deliberation, opted out of Rock On 2 having ensemble cast to work in solo-heroine project Udta Punjab. Reports say, Alia was offered the part of a band member left empty by Luke Kenny in Rock On, while, in Udta Punjab she is the main lead opposite Shahid Kapoor. When asked about the reason behind rejecting Rock On 2 and accepting Udta Punjab, by a Bollywood portal, she said, "Shall we just stick to Udta Punjab? I said a big YES to that!"
