Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali's next Rockstar!
After shuffling the dates of his film Rockstar for three years, Imtiaz Ali has finally decided to make the film with Ranbir Kapoor. The film was earlier launched in 2006 with John Abraham, but it was shelved immediately.
Giving us a chronological record of events, a source said, “Imtiaz wanted to make Rockstar with John immediately after Socha Na Tha, which released in March 2005. He had even put one of his films titled Geet on hold for Rockstar. He also had several sessions with Rockstar's music director AR Rahman, who had composed a few songs for the film. The film was to be produced by UTV Motion Pictures. However, the film failed to materialise. Imtiaz then planned to make a film with Akshay Kumar, which too didn't work out. Meanwhile, Geet, which was earlier to be made with Bobby Deol and Preity Zinta, was remade as Jab We Met with Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor. After Jab We Met released in 2007, Imtiaz planned to make a film with Eros starring Hrithik Roshan which is still under consideration. After these unsuccessful attempts, Imtiaz has now finally decided to revive Rockstar with Astavinayak.”
Chief creative officer of UTV Rampage Motion Pictures, Ram Mirchandani agreed that they had earlier planned to make Rockstar in 2006. “We were working with Imtiaz Ali on the film, but unfortunately it didn't work out at that time for various reasons.”
Commenting on reviving the film with Ranbir, Imtiaz said, “I met Ranbir and we discussed the possibility of working together. However, we have not zeroed in on any subject just as I haven’t done with Hrithik either.”
Ranbir said, “Not true. I am only doing Rajniti, Rocket Singh and Siddharth Anand’s next. I have not signed any other film.”
The official spokesperson of Astavinayak said, “Yes, we have signed Imtiaz Ali for our next project, talks are on with actors and it's too early to say more.”
