Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor,who promoted his upcoming flick ‘Rockstar’ on Sunday described the movie to be a musical journey.

“The film is a musical journey and a love story. A lot can be explained through the promos of the film on how the journey goes and when the film opens in theatres on November 11,2011 you will discover yourself,” said Kapoor,who plays the lead role in this movie.

“But,of course I play a rockstar in the film,whose name is ”Janardhan Jakkad” and who in the film would transform into the rockstar ”Jordan”,” he added.

Meanwhile,the director of the film,Imtiaz Ali,who was also present on the occasion informed that the music of the film,which will be launched on September 20,was parallel to the personality of the protagonist and was a mix of local flavour and the dominant western influence on his music.

“See the title is ‘Rockstar’ so it”s obviously about music and I think the spirit of rock,I think is local to the place. This guy (the protagonist) is a Hindi speaking guy who can”t speak English well,” said Ali.

“He is a very local guy,who lives in New Delhi,but he plays western music. His music is a mix of the local taste and the influence of western music,” he added.

Nargis Fakhri plays the female lead in this movie. Oscar winning music director A R Rahman has composed the music of ‘Rockstar’.

Legendary actor Shammi Kapoor,who breathed his last on August 14 this year,makes his last silver screen appearance in this film.
