After the massive success of Jab We Met & Love Aaj Kal, Director Imtiaz Ali is back with Rockstar.
Starring Ranbir Kapoor and newbie Nargis Fakhri, the film revolves around a Delhi boy (Ranbir) who resents the fact that his life is as easy as a walk in the part. To his frustration, he realises that the greatest musicians derive their inspiration from a painful past. So he works to that end.
Ranbir's character proposes to the most sought-after girl in Delhi University. Wonder of wonders, she falls for him and together they go on a rollercoaster relationship. Eventually he does get his heart broken. And this in turn drives him towards music like never before.
The hit soundtrack of the film has been composed by the Mozart of Madras, AR Rahman. The song Saadda Haq is 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 this song. Other songs such as Kathiyaiy Karoon, Kun Faaya Kun and Jo Bhi Main are also topping the charts.
Singer Mohit Chauhan has lent his voice to Ranbir's character 'Jordan' in the film.
The film has been primarily shot in Delhi, Kashmir & Prague. Ranbir's grungy look, styled by celebrity stylist Aalim and unique costumes designed by Aki Narula, have bowled over his fans. Imtiaz Ali and Aki Narula handpicked several clothes from local shops in Delhi to create an authentic look for Ranbir's character. Ranbir on his part, lived with a traditional Jatt family to gain insight into his character.
Apart from the promising story, the superhot lead stars and the fantastic music, Rockstar is a must-watch for fans of Shammi Kapoor. The legendary made his last silver screen appearance in this film.
Catch the passion and the music this November 11.
