13 years after its initial release, Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rockstar was screened in select theatres across in India. The movie has always been a favourite of Ranbir's fans and marked the first collaboration between the Animal star and Imtiaz Ali, who later also worked together on Tamasha (2016). The re-release trend has picked up pace in India and seeing the positive audience reactions, is likely to continue. Rockstar, meanwhile, has been doing good business after it was re-released three weeks back.

Rockstar scores big after re-release

Ranbir's Rockstar was a critical and commercial hit during its initial release. Due to lack of new films in the big screens owing to the election season, Rockstar was screened in select theatres in India. Its box office collections have been decent, with the business picking up gradually. After Animal success and Imtiaz's last directorial Amar Singh Chamkila earning good reviews, the interest in Rockstar re-release also witnessed an uptick, which is evident in its collections despite limited shows.
