Mumbai, October 1 (): The lead role is played by Ranbir Kapoor, with whom the Eros International worked recently on Anjaana Anjaani. The female lead will be played by Nargis Fakhri. Other cast members include Piyush Mishra and Shammi Kapoor. The shooting began in May 2010 and the film is scheduled to release on 11 November 2011.
The music for the film is scored by A. R. Rahman replacing Imtiaz Ali’s usual associate, Pritam. The soundtrack feature 14 tracks overall. According to Rahman, Rockstar was “a character driven film and as one can guess from the title, there will be lots of guitar”.
The climax song of the film would have Ranbir Kapoor performing in front of a live audience. Ranbir had travelled to Chennai and stayed with Rahman for a week in order to feel the song imbibe and absorb it so that when he finally performs it, the song would be an extension of his personality.
Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar is special for Ranbir Kapoor for several reasons. It is his first film with grand-uncle Shammi Kapoor .
Ranbir said, “There is a dialogue in Rockstar that to have a break in life, you need to keep your heart breaking. The pain, dukh, dard, aanso…these are very important in life. Only when you undergo such experience, an artist is born of you. You grow BIG in life“.
Ranbir said about Nargis Fakri that, “The girl has come from America, never stayed in India, she’s learned the language from scratch, she’s played a very difficult character in a very difficult movie, which is her first film. It’s a passionate love story. There is bound to be some kind of chemistry which has to be there between us. That does not mean we have to work on our real life chemistry to get it on reel life. No, that is the director’s job, that’s the talent we bring in, that’s the way the characters are written.”
As Ranbir kapoor first joins hand with the Oscar winner A.R.Rahman, the movie is expected a lot. The soundtrack album was released on 30 September, 2011 by T-Series. The music in this movie is a great hit.
