"City needs rock music to stay alive", says actor and a rockhead, Farhan Akhtar

Versatile actor Farhan Akhtar, who made his acting debut with the musical film `Rock On!!`, recently performed at the Independence Rock fest held in Mumbai. He feels that rock music is what keeps the maximum city of Mumbai alive. 

He seems to be right as the cosmopolitan is a melting pot of different cultures and rock music keeps it pulsating. The `Dil Chahta Hai` helmer is a die-hard rock`n`roll fan and was thrilled to perform along with Indian rock band `Parikrama` at the fest which returned to Mumbai after a hiatus of nine years.

Talking about his experience at the fest, Farhan said that he was happy to be there in the company of like-minded music lovers of the genre. For him “playing a song with `Parikrama` was exciting” but more than that he was there as a fan of rock`n`roll and “for the love of it”.

As the voice that represents youth, Farhan feels that “we need to keep the fire of rock music burning”. He added, “Just keep the fire burning. Rock always represents freedom. It represents independence. It represents having your own voice.”
