Is Imtiaz Ali hogging the credit for ‘Rockstar’?
The film may be winning awards everywhere but surprisingly, its co-writer Muazzam Beg isn’t getting any credit for his work in public!
Rockstar is turning out to be the toast of almost every awards ceremony. Ranbir Kapoor is winning both popular and critics’ awards. Imtiaz Ali is taking home trophies for the story and direction. But in all this prize-winning joy there is one person who isn’t getting his due – co-writer of Rockstar, Muazzam Beg. Talking to us recently, Beg said, “I happened to meet Imtiaz Ali when I was working for Subhash Ghai’s production house. I had written the story of Rockstar almost eight years ago and Imtiaz was interested in making it. Somehow it kept getting postponed and finally it released last year. I am very happy and proud that Rockstar is being nominated for popular awards in so many categories and that itself is a high. I respect Ranbir Kapoor for pulling off the role with such panache – he is one of the few actors who takes cinema so seriously.”Click here to read more
