decline in the following weekends.
Rockstar has generated more than 11 crore at international Box Oddice in the first weekend and the producer of the film Imtiaz Ali also received a great response.
Other than Ranbir’s stunning performance, film is also a big attraction for the audiences for its soulful music given by AR Rehman.
“I feel a sense of gratification and calmness. We worked so hard on the film, so it eases us to see that people have liked it. I attribute their compliments for me as an actor to the character they connected with,” said Ranbir.
The main characters of Rockstar include debutant Nargis Fakhri, Piyush Mishra, Kumud Mishra and Aditi Rao. Ranbir is playing a totally different role in this movie and it might serve as landmark of his career.
