The much-awaited music of Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar composed by AR Rahman which has already created a huge buzz among the masses, is finally set to hit stands on Monday without an official music launch event. However, the film’s producer and music label have come to an agreement to do concerts in Delhi and London, in early November, along with the cast and crew of the film.
“The buzz around the music is so big that we don’t need any formal music launch. We wanted to do something different, so we thought of this new idea,” says Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.
The soundtrack of Rockstar was scheduled to release on September 24, and was later postponed to September 29. The delay in production, followed by some final touches to the CD, stalled the release of the music, reveals Kumar. “The delay took place due to the production. The CD is also a bit different. It has a lot of embossing. The master also got delayed because Rahman was not in India. We were anyway targeting its release around Navratri and not during the shraadh (fasting) period,” he says.
According to Kumar, the concerts will feature Rahman on stage, and Ranbir may join in too. “We are planning concerts since the film is about music. It will be in Delhi on November 1 and later in London. And by November, I am sure the songs will have become more popular,” he says.
