Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Rockstar’ rakes in Rs 11.25 cr on 11.11.11
It seems Rockstar is well on its way to becoming a hit. We hear that the Ranbir Kapoor-Nargis Fakhri-starrer has already made Rs 11.25 crore across India on opening day. That is not only the highest opening for any Ranbir film, but also supposedly the most any film has made in the non-festival season – except Ready. Rockstar has got positive reviews from critics and moviegoers, so it is expected to continue its good run at the box office. It’s also helped by the fact that the next big-budget movie Desi Boyz will release only on November 25. So Rockstar has got two clear weeks where it can expect to rake in the profits. The Imtiaz Ali film needs all the help it can get, considering it went over budget. Buzz is that it was slated to be made in Rs 45 crore, but what with Ranbir and Imtiaz both being perfectionists, the film ended up costing Rs 60 crore. Right now, it looks like the film will recover its costs from ticket sales alone, and when you add up all the other sales – satellite rights, music rights – it will definitely be a hit. Good going, Ranbir and Imtiaz.

Ranbir Kapoor birthday special: a superstar in the making
The Rockstar actor, who turns 29 today, is taking baby steps towards becoming the best actor of his generation
Coming from the industry’s first film family, there were very high expectations riding on him right from his first film Saawariya. Even though the film tanked at the box office, Ranbir Kapoor got great reviews from the audience and the critics. There has been no looking back for the actor since then. After the debacle of his first film, he went on to do a couple of romantic films but refused to get stuck in that zone like his father had many years ago. He quickly did a couple of comedy flicks and now he’s getting into the serious zone as an actor with Rajneeti and Rockstar. He has chosen his films quite carefully with just eight releases in two years. Despite being an average looker and not hitting the jackpot at the BO, people are already calling him the born star. Rockstar could probably justify the faith that the audiences, critics and the industry have shown in him. Meanwhile, we take a look at what makes this actor click.Click here to read more

Are top stars shying away from Sanjay Leela Bhansali?
Apparently, the Guzaarish filmmaker has knocked on every star actor’s door to get them for his next film. But so far everyone has turned him down
After a long time of writing and contemplating Sanjay Leela Bhansali finally decided his next story and script, but the big announcement is yet to happen. According to grapevine, its coz the maverick filmmaker hasn’t managed to get any of the actors to say ‘yes’ to his film. Bhansali approached almost every big name in his phone book; from his prodigy Ranbir Kapoor to one-time good friend Salman Khan. We don’t think it has got anything to do with the script.

Will ‘Rockstar’ be lucky for Ranbir, Nargis and Imtiaz?
Our in-house astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi claims Rockstar will go on to become a huge hit. Not only is the buzz surrounding the film a positive one and its songs already chartbusters, but the ‘stars’ are also favouring it. “The title Rockstar adds up to Number 24 – this octave of number 6 is a fortunate number. It promises the assistance and association of those of rank and position with one’s plans; it also denotes gain through love and the opposite sex; it is a favourable number when it comes out in relation to future events,” he says. So the film is bound to prove profitable for all involved. He adds, “Plus the release date of 11.11.11 will prove lucky as this day is primarily ruled by number 2 (Moon) which is a highly creative, artistic and spiritual number. Add to that, the year 2011 which sums up to number 4 (Rahu) supports most people, places, dates or names adding up to numbers 1, 2, 4 or 7 and Ranbir Kapoor (28th September), newcomer Nargis Fakhri (20th October 1979) and director Imtiaz Ali (16th June 1971), all three fit in this bracket just perfectly.” We don’t know about numerology, but we sure are excited about watching Rockstar. Aren’t you?
