The movie was initiated with Vishal Bhardawaj, as director, and Shah Rukh Khan as an actor for the film but the things did not work out between the production house and the director. And there were also many other reasons as well which delayed the project.
Ranbir is to essay the character of a north Indian guy who falls in love with a South Indian girl. Ranbir and Imitiaz have been roped into this venture from Rockstar.
Ranbir is quite satisfied and he made Sajid satisfied as well that Imitiaz is the apt guy who can translate Chetan Bhagat’s romantic novel onto the celluloid. Ranbir is quite convinced and impressed by Imitiaz’s skills after working very closely with him in Rockstar.
The film was caught in many controversies initially due to the creative differences between Vishal Bhardwaj and Chetan Bhagat and then the clashes emerge because of signing the leading lady in the movie, etc.
Shah Rukh Khan and Vishal Bhardwaj, who was taken together to make a film by Sajid’s efforts, went to work together in some other movie later.
Sajid Nadiadwala wanted to take Ranbir in the main lead thus he was calling him and finally Ranbir said yes to the project and also convinced Nadidawala for the abilities of Imitiaz Ali.

Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri (the newcomer babe on Bollywood front) starrer Rockstar, after huge media hype and promotions by the makers, finally hits the screens all over. Imtiaz Ali’s directed venture opens up with interesting fun filled sequences that entice the souls. By the time the sequences begin shifting between past and the present, the audiences’ connection with the film develops instantly.
The typical Delhi college’s lifestyle and the heart-hitting beauty of the Kashmir valley have been captured magnificently getting glued to the viewers to the screens. The leading characters – Ranbir and Nargis, college mates, step out for the secret tour. Nargis (who plays Heer) is going to get married and before the wedding, she wants to do crazy things such as consuming desi alcohol, viewing the second class porn movies in small town and the things like that. The youth’s spark has been executed on the screen with conviction.
First half goes brilliantly well grabbing the attention of the viewer but the post interval portion appears a bit lackluster since the narration turns mundane. The film lacks in another issue – realism. There are a number of sequences which the viewer cannot swallow. The audience begins thinking that the intelligent director like Imtiaz could have done with these sequences by injecting more realism. Since Shammi Kapoor, the late star who passed away some time back, too made his appearance on the film and it is his last film as an actor, the sequence between Shammi and Ranbir appears simply heart-warming.
Janardhan Jakhar (Ranbir Kapoor) is a n immature but a guy who loves cheers. He has one big dream in life – to become the biggest rockstar just like Jim Morrison. Soon he comes to know that all rockstars shares one thing in common ‘tragedy’. To become what they are today, all stars have undergone mammoth sufferings and struggles. He loses his heart to his college mate, Heer (Nargis Fakhri) who wants to enjoy craziest things before she gets married. Rockstar is the journey of the passionate music lover Janardhan who embarks to become a rockstar.
AR Rahman’s music is a class to listen too. The soothing composition entices the souls. The editing of the flick is average. This venture of Imtiaz resembles with his previous movies – Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal.
Story is good and the screenplay is creatively penned. The execution on the screen is good but not of that standards for which Imtiaz is known in the industry and among the audiences.
Ranbir Kapoor shows his class that he is the one actor who keeps on improving. He is simply wonderful in the role of a rockstar. Nargis Fakhri looks amazingly gorgeous and enacts the part well. Rest of the cast too does the job well.
On the whole, Rockstar is a good entertainer but not extraordinary fête.
Well, Nargis Fakhri, the leading lady of Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rockstar, has a Brazilian husband. Her Brazilian hubby has been making bigger ripples these days. Hmmm….this babe is not married, guys….balance your breaths….she is married in the film instead.
Moufid Aziz, the Brazilian born model turned actor, is Nargis’ hubby in Imtiaz Ali’s flick, ‘Rockstar’. The guy has not been introduced in any of film’s promotion and has not been even fetched along to promote the movie.
When asked about his absence in the film’s promotions, he said that Imitiaz is a great director and he likes to offer the surprises to the audiences and may be his part is a big surprise for the viewers. Well, it’s a good judgment by Aziz!
The Brazilian actor revealed that he has been in India since 2007 and he has been paying the taxes here. He has done and is doing many modeling tasks here and then he felt the need to showcase his acting talents. He decided to join in Bollywood and straight went to give audition for Imitiaz’s Rockstar. He bagged the job instantly. He delivered two auditions and soon was fetched by Imitiaz Ali.
His role is of a man who does international business ventures and is a kind human being, who is caring for his family – his mother and wife (Nargis Fakhri).
Aziz has done many modeling jobs and has walked the ramps in various countries like Germany, Portugal and Spain, etc. Like him, Nargis too has been an international model.
Ranbir Kapoor, the current Bollywood heartthrob and the central focus of the film fraternity and most importantly every known brand, is the one guy who has been well in news due to his romantic link-ups with several leading Bollywood actresses like Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Nargis Fakhri and others. This playboy, on the other hand, says that he has undergone several heartbreaks so far in his life.
About Ranbir, it is said that he makes the romantic association with the leading gal of the film he works with in every film. Presently his co-star is Nargis Fakhri, with whom he has been dating since the movie went on floors. For Nargis, Ranbir dumped the milky sexy beauty Katrina Kaif and now the rumors are that when he will shoot for the next movie, he will dump Nargis and head to the new lady.
With Deepika Padukone, who has now been dating Siddharth Malya (the liquor tycoon), Ranbir was in a committed relationship and his family had even approved the gal. During the relationship, there were occasion when the couple landed into shaking position, the late Shammi Kapoor had come in between for their patch up. But eventually the couple broke up in 2009.
Recently when a reporter asked him about his break up with Deepika and his link ups, he said that his heart got broken many a time.
In the upcoming flick ‘Rockstar’ with Nargis Fakhri, Ranbir is playing the role of a Rockstar. The movie is set to release on November 11th.

Imtiaz Ali, the creative director, has done everything possible to give the movie a true authenticated look. Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision and Eros International's Rockstar carries a Kashmiri Pandit marriage on the celluloid for the first time and the sequence shows the all rituals and traditions.
Before filming this scene, Imitiaz asked the line producer to help him meet the Kashmiri Pandit family so that he can understand each and everything related to this wedding and ofcourse he wanted to create the authenticity in the sequence. The house of the pandit was located in a small Hindu settlement in Srinagar. The whole crew under Imitiaz Ali’s captaincy went to the house and stayed there for around three hours. While enjoying the Kashmiri tea over there, they learnt all about the weddings taken place there.
The crew then stepped towards the famous Kheer Bhawani temple, bumped into the priest and watched his own daughter’s marriage video so that a true feeling about the rituals could be developed to be used later in the film’s scene.
Manish Malhotra and Akki Narula, the designers of the movie, walked around in the streets to learn about the fashion and traditional attire Kashmiris use.
While the scene was being shot, the locals were allowed and had full freedom to stop the director and let him know the right thing if anything was wrong.
The film is scheduled to be released on 11.11.11.
