Interesting trivia on Ranbir Kapoor's Rockstar

Director of the film, Imtiaz Ali had written the first draft of Rockstar in 2007 and wanted to cast Hrithik Roshan as Jordan and Kareena Kapoor as Heer. There was a lot of media speculation surrounding this news. However, Hrithik Roshan declined, because he did not like the story's ending where Jordan dies. After casting Ranbir Kapoor for the role, Imtiaz Ali could not cast Kareena opposite him since they are cousins and that creates an issue with the love scenes.

For the role, Ranbir Kapoor had to spend much of his time with A. R. Rehman learning guitar and getting the feel of the character.

Actress Nargis was not the first choice but was eventually cast. In many instances, during the film, Fakhris's voice was dubbed.

Another fun fact was that the film was shot in reverse as the crew didn't want to break the continuity of Ranbir Kapoor's hairstyle. So the climax with long hair was shot first. Even the song Kun Faya Kun, was shot immediately after a few emotional scenes, where Ranbir had long hair. However, for this song, he had to sport short hair. When he entered the sets on the first day of the shoot for this song, no one could recognise the star.

For the song, Naadan Parinde, Kapoor had to try different looks and tried almost two dozen wigs to get the perfect look.
