Bollywood, traditionally, hasn't given too much thought to whether actors playing musical instruments in their movies look authentic while doing so.

None of these instruments seem to be playing anything close to what you can hear, for example.

However, in a film like Rock On 2, a sequel to the 2008 hit about four members in a rock band, you kinda need to get those details right.

So, after Arjun Rampal actually trained under a guitar teacher for his part as Joe Mascarenhas in both films, it has been reported that Shraddha Kapoor is learning how to play the piano (or more accurately, a keyboard instrument) specifically for the film.

According to Mumbai Mirror, the musically-inclined actress (we all know she can sing) has been training under a teacher, Faustin Missier, for nearly 14 hours a day when she isn't shooting.

This has been reportedly going on for the past two-and-a-half months. Her father, actor Shakti Kapoor, confirmed this and told Mirror: "You'll hear my girl playing the piano on screen, know that it's her and not a double."

Kapoor will also be lending her voice to the film and is getting some formal training under jazz singer Samantha Edwards.

Rock On 2, also starring Farhan Akhtar, Purab Kohli, and Arjun Rampal, is slated for a September 2016 release.
