When Ranbir, Nargis and Imtiaz ran away to the fields of Punjab!!

Team Rockstar aka Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakhri and director Imtiaz Ali spent some quality time with nature as the trio shared some fun moments amongst the lush green fields of Punjab recently, all by themselves!

After meeting the students of a local university in Jalandhar, the team who has been traveling on an exciting road trip across Punjab had a little time to themselves before their next venture.

So we hear that Rockstar Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis and Imtiaz took off to the fields on Jalandar all by themselves without their security team, assistants and other staff!

We hear that an excited Nargis was running around chasing grass hoppers and taking in the sights of the beautiful green fields...Imtiaz disappeared to some place to soak in the peace... and Ranbir spent time sitting on the muddy grass surrounded by acres of land all around with cows chewing on their supper, breezy weather, totally isolated from the madness!

Says Ranbir, "We thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful time in the rustic atmosphere. It was really nice and we all felt alive being so close to nature! We had the most fantastic time in Punjab and I want tothank everyone for the warm welcome and the love and the support given to team Rockstar!"

Why Ranbir Kapoor doesn't have a nickname

Imtiaz Ali’s fourth film as a director, Rockstar, is gearing up for a November 11 release. It revolves around the 10-year metamorphosis of Janardan Jakar into rockstar Jordan. Talking about the transition, Ranbir Kapoor, who plays the lead, points out that to start with, his character is an
immature Jat boy from Pitampura in Delhi, studying in Hindu College.

“The girl (played by debutant Nargis Fakhri) he loves gives him the name Jordan. And because he’s a little bit of a wannabe, he finds it cool. Eventually, that’s the name the world knows him by, which in a way, not only epitomises his musical journey, but is also an homage to his love story,” points out Ranbir.

Ask the 27-year Bollywood star if he was known by any other name during his ‘growing’ years and Ranbir retorts, “Our family has a history of funny pet names so when I was born, they consciously decided not to saddle me with one. Some friends called me Randy, which like Jordan, was a pretty wannabe name, but unlike Janardan, I didn’t like it much.”

The actor, who’s a household name now, admits that when he was in the US studying method acting at The Lee Strasberg Theatre And Film Institute in New York, Americans had a problem pronouncing his name. He smiles, “I got them to get it right by miming, ‘run’ and ‘beer’. It always worked.”

Nargis Fakhri turns into Kashmiri bride for 'Rockstar'

In his movies filmmaker Imtiaz Ali always presents the culture and tradition of its respective lead characters in a fine unique way. Be it 'Jab We Met' or 'Love Aaj Kal', the talented director made sure that the story as well as the presentation carries genuine essence, keeping on the lines of reality. Similarly in his forthcoming Ranbir Kapoor starrer 'Rockstar', Imtiaz had taken pains to do intense research for the film. The subject, story, its characters, music - the director covered every aspect of the film while preparing the ground work.
Take this one for instance.... 'Rockstar' has Kashmiri Pandit wedding where Imtiaz went out of his way to showcase the ceremony in an authentic manner, including all the related rituals and traditions. Inside story has it that Imtiaz made the film's line producer meet a Kashmiri Pandit family to know the important details of their wedding.

Yes, most of the scenes of 'Rockstar' are shot in the beautiful locales of Kashmir. It is said that the director along with his team had also met a priest in Srinagar's famous Kheer Bhawani temple and watched his daughter's wedding video to have a visual understanding of the rituals.
For the female lead Nargis Fakhri who features as a Kashmiri bride, the team of designers - Manish Malhotra and Aki Narula - said to have scouted several streets to put together the perfect bride's look and attire.
Interestingly, Imtiaz welcomed the locals to share their suggestions for the sequence and also gave them liberty to inform him if there was something amiss in the same.

Video - Catch Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri romance in ‘Tum Ho’ song

They were fun to watch in the song Katiya Karoon and now you can see their passionate side in Tum Ho song from RockstarRanbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri, the new ‘it’ couple of silver screen, will woo the audience with their fresh, tender and passionate romance.

The composition Tum Ho in the voice of Mohit Chauhan is the most-talked about track in the movie as it features romance between Ranbir and Nargis in its passionate form. The song is beautifully shot in Delhi and abroad. And it’s quite unlike the song Katiya Karoon where lovers are seen having fun moments. The somber melodious track Tum Ho is undoubtedly in the league of AR Rahman’s romantic hits like Kehna Hi Kya from ‘Bombay’, and Yeh Haseen Vadiyan from ‘Roza’.

After watching the video many would be in awe of the model Nargis Fakhri. Now, we understand why Ranbir Kapoor and director Imtiaz Ali can’t stop singing praises of the actress. Ranbir even said that Nargis is the big asset in the film, while Imtiaz feels she has a charismatic on-screen persona.

Here is the video of the song Tum Ho from ‘Rockstar’. Watch it and tell us what you feel about Ranbir and Nargis’ on-screen romance. We love it!

'Rockstar' will decide Nargis Fakhri's career

The promos of Imtiaz Ali's 'Rockstar' have initiated quite a buzz in the minds of movie enthusiasts. The songs of 'Rockstar' are constantly moving up on the charts. The resultant of the fusion of western rock and Indian conventional music seems good and youths are accepting these songs as the latest rage.
The film does not have just one western connection.
The lead lady of the film Nargis Fakhri also belongs to the west in more than one ways.

A New Yorker by birth, Nargis Fakhri was prominently an American model before she caught the eyes of director Imtiaz Ali.
Fakhri has also appeared in famous American TV show 'America's next top model'. She was the only contestant of the 2003 season who was called back by the organisers after elimination.
It was a great achievement by a girl of Pakistani origin to have so much popularity in an American show post 9/11.
Fakhri's Pakistani descent comes from her father while her mother is from Czechoslovakia.
A known model in the west, Fakhri has already appeared in the campaigns designed for companies of the likes of Ford, Nova and Leni.
She has some experience of handling shutterbugs in India too. She was among the models captured for Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar in the year 2009.
'Rockstar' is one of the biggest releases of the year and thus playing the female lead will ensure Fakhri's performance under scanner.
As per the teasers, the film primarily seems to be focussed on the journey of an unpolished singer but Nargis Fakhri has also been given enough space in these trailers, which shows the kind of confidence she enjoys from the makers.
Several Pakistani heroines have tried their luck in Bollywood in the past, but unfortunately none of them made it to the top.
Meera, Reema and Mona Lisa were among the girls who had come to Mumbai with a desire in their hearts to become lead ladies opposite some big names of the tinsel town. Meera in particular was brought to India with much pomp and show. She had featured opposite Ashmit Patel in 'Nazar', a film written by the ace director Mahesh Bhatt. Then she worked under the direction of Rajiv Babbar in 'Kasak', where the singer turned actor Lucky Ali donned the role of hero opposite her.
Both the films doomed at the box office and so did Meera's career.
However, Fakhri's career looks to sustain more than Meera and other Pakistani girls, simply due to the responses she is getting before the release of 'Rockstar'.
The acting talent of first timers always remains under the shadow of doubt and thus the audiences will have to wait till the release of 'Rockstar' on November 11. Then only one would be able to speculate about the duration of her stint in Bollywood.
Sometimes, even a hit film does not ensure a longer working period for a foreign face in Bollywood.
Remember Giselli Monteiro who had played the character of Harleen Kaur in Imtiaz Ali's 'Love Aaj Kal'. She is not visible after that film so far.
Therefore, Nargis Fakhri will have to grab the chances with both hands if she wants to stay in Bollywood.
