After the massive success of ‘Jab We Met’ & ‘Love Aaj Kal’, Director Imtiaz Ali is back with ‘ROCKSTAR’ produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision & Eros International.
Starring Ranbir Kapoor and newbie Nargis Fakhri, the film revolves around a Delhi boy (Ranbir) who resents the fact that he has no pain in his life. He has realized that all great Musicians have had a painful life. In order to get his heart broken, he proposes to the most sought-after girl in Delhi University.
The story of ‘Rockstar’ is the seven years of the boy’s life and relationship with the girl at the end of which he does become a huge musical star, but his heart also gets broken…
The soundtrack of the film has been composed by musical genius AR Rahman. The song ‘Saadda Haq’ has already become a nationwide rage; some even calling it the ‘anthem of the youth’. Rahman roped in Orianthi Panagris, an internationally acclaimed guitarist who has worked with Michael Jackson for the song. Other songs like ‘Kathiya Karoon’, ‘Kun Faaya Kun’ & ‘Jo Bhi Main’ are also highly popular with listeners. Singer Mohit Chauhan has lent his voice to Ranbir’s character ‘Jordan’ in the film.
The film has been majorly shot in Delhi, Kashmir & Prague. Ranbir’s grungy look, styled by celebrity stylist Aalim and unique costumes designed by Aki Narula have created a huge hype among his fans. Imtiaz Ali and Aki Narula handpicked several clothes from the local shops in Delhi to create an authentic look for Ranbir’s character in the film. Ranbir Kapoor, who plays the youngest son of a traditional Jatt family, actually lived with a Jatt family to experience their lifestyle as part of his character study.
Rockstar, for its exceptional story and chart topping music is one of the most awaited films. Another reason why the film is a must watch is because the late legendary actor Shammi Kapoor has made his last appearance on the big screen.
Rockstar releases in theatres on 11.11.11 – a date that appears in the calendar once in every thousand years!
