Rockstar release might be pushed to November

It looks like the glam-dream of seeing the three gen-X superstars Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan locked in a battle to the finish would remain just a fantasy. The expected clash on September 9 among Shahid’s Mausam, Ranbir’s Rockstar and Imran’s Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is not happening.

Though official sources claim otherwise, Imtiaz Ali‘s Rockstar has been moved forward to November.

There seem to be no limits to the delays being caused in the release of Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar. Though officially the latest release date is September 9, there is no doubt the film has been secretly shifted to November and with every chance of there being further delays.

In fact a source very close to the project confirms Rockstar has been shifted to November while the film producers, Eros International, maintain the status quo on the release. Says Ram Mirchandani of Eros, “As of now we are not in a position to comment on whether the release date has been shifted from September 9.As soon as we get a clearer picture we will let you know.”

However, a source from Rockstar pooh-poohs the September release plan. “For now we’ve shifted to November. But this again is not sure. We could move further ahead.”

The latest buzz is that Rockstar may not be released this year at all. It could now be released at the beginning of 2012. The main reason for the interminable delay is said to be the music.

Says the source, “A R Rahman has still to do a couple of tunes and the full background music. However, director Imtiaz Ali is really happy with the music that Rahman has done so far. In fact Imtiaz knows the musical film is being transported to another level thanks to Rahman’s music. However, the delay is proving expensive to the film’s producers Eros International and Shree Ashtavinayak. It’s also Nargis Fakhri‘s debut film. And she’s getting anxious to sign other films. She is flooded with offers. But as per her contract until Rockstar releases she can’t sign any other film.”

The biggest sufferer is Anurag Basu and his producer UTV whose dates for Ranbir Kapoor in Barfee keep getting allotted to Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar.

With the songs for Rockstar yet to be delivered, it looks like Basu’s Barfee may yet have to suffer some more date-adjustment hassles with the other project.
