It has come to the notice of the Press that Imtiaz Ali’s latest production “Rockstar” which stars Ranbir Kapoor is very much similar to the character of Devdas. In fact the “Love Aaj Kal” director is even contemplating to end Ranbir Kapoor’s character life in the movie based on the tragic outcome of Devdas.
The story of Rockstar revolves around a passionate who is obsessed with his love which is pretty much similar to the local lover Devdas who was besotted with “Paaro”. Apparently model turned actress Nargis Fakhri will be playing the role of Paaro where as the “Yeh Saali Zindagi” star Aditi Rao will don the character of Chandramukhi.
According to sources the movie finishes with Ranbir Kapoor dying on stage while performing which draws comparison with the death of Devdas while going to meet Chandramukhi.
Ranbir’s character is also supposedly sensitive and arrogant at the same time believing that he must fall in love to improve his musical capabilities. However the problem escalates when his character falls in love only to never get out of it thereby getting consumed by it.
The director is also keeping Ranbir Kapoor’s image amongst the younger audience which might not suit his first on screen death.
