Director Imtiaz Ali has decided to revive his pet project “Rockstar” and the lead role will be played by Ranbir Kapoor.
In fact, “Rockstar” was earlier launched in 2006 with John Abraham, immediately after “Socha Na Tha”, but it did not take off. He had even put his film titled “Geet” on hold for “Rockstar”. Music director AR Rahman had also composed a few songs for the film which was to be produced by UTV Motion Pictures.
“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.
In 2007, Imtiaz planned to make a film with Eros starring Hrithik Roshan and the project is still under discussions. According to sources, Imtiaz has now decided to revive “Rockstar” with producers Astavinayak and having Ranbir Kapoor as the hero.
