After superstar Shahrukh Khan, it is the turn of actor Ranbir Kapoor. Yes! The Bollywood star, who is all set to release his upcoming movie Rockstar on November 11, is trying out all possible tricks to promote his much-awaited film. The latest effort in that direction is that Ranbir is performing with music director AR Rahman in a live concert the next week at a suburban college in Mumbai.
Interestingly, this is going to be Ranbir Kapoor's maiden stage performance in a live concert, which will be held on November 1 at Bhavan's College ground in suburban Andheri here. "Ranbir has not performed live to an audience and this makes the concert special. Rahman's music is brilliant and has been liked by everyone. So we thought of doing a concert," producer Dhillin Mehta told the PTI.
Ranbir Kapoor's character in the movie Rockstar is modelled on the rock legend Jim Morrison of 'The Doors'. Talking to PTI, director Imtiaz Ali says, "Since the film is a story of a performer having a live concert was always on agenda...it was required. At the concert songs from the film will be performed though we not exactly replicate the songs we will just play it live."
However, the film Rockstar introduces newcomer Nargis Fakhri. Besides Ranbir and Rahman, actress Nargis, singer Mohit Chauhan, director Imtiaz Ali, music arranger Ranjit Barot and leading percussionist Sivamani will also be the part of the live concert.
