Ranbir’s new co-star
The lucky girl is none other than supermodel Diana Penty. She is a popular face in the modeling world. People will also recognize her as the face of Maybelline in India (and one of the faces abroad). She replaced Deepika Padukone as the ambassador more than a year ago. And now, just like Deepika, she will be directed in a highly-awaited film by Imtiaz Ali.
A source tells us, ‘There were talks of Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and even Kareena Kapoor doing the film. Ranbir didn’t want to be paired romantically with sister Kareena. Imtiaz had almost finalized Anushka but he decided he wanted an absolutely new face. Diana was short-listed before she was finalized. Co-incidentally she has done a commercial with Ranbir Kapoor.’
The source adds, ‘Diana couldn’t have asked for a better launch-pad. Working with Imtiaz Ali is a golden opportunity because he doesn’t make too many films and he doesn’t repeat his actors. Ayesha Takia, Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor have all given excellent performances thanks to him. He has changed the face of their careers.’
Rock Star is produced by Ashtavinayak, who had also produced Jab We Met. Initially, Imtiaz was going to make the film with John Abraham and UTV was producing it but things didn’t work out and he made Love Aaj Kal instead.
Ranbir Kapoor is learning to play the guitar for the film. Imtiaz Ali has scouted for locations in Prague and New Delhi. The film will go on the floors later this month. AR Rahman has scored the music for the film which is likely to release around Christmas 2010.
