Director Imtiaz Ali has released the script of his critically acclaimed film, Rockstar. The director shared a video speaking much about Rockstar and how he started writing it after Socha Na.
In the Facebook video, Imtiaz says, “By this time it acquired a different character, Jordan himself acquired a different character. This changed the film and I am actually happy that it didn’t get made earlier.”
“One of the differences in Jordan was that in the earlier version, Jordan spoke very well. He was creative and articulate, he would joke around and be interesting. He was written at the same time as I was working on Geet. And Jordan somehow sounded the same way that Geet would have sounded. But later when I went back to making the film, I realised that Jordan tries to express his feelings and thoughts through music because he couldn’t talk about it. It was then, that I made Jordan an inarticulate character. A character, who would more likely make a fool of himself than otherwise,” he said.
Imtiaz went on to confesses that he has the most intimate relationship with Rockstar, of all his films. He has always said that he felt Rockstar is not a perfect film, but the script does have this purity, the character a complex one to film — and he observes that the movie followed the character and his whims more than the path that it was set out for.

In 2011 when Rockstar released, I knew it was not mine to judge anymore. All these years later, it still remains close to my heart because with Jordan I explored situations that I thought were key moments in an artists life.
