Imtiaz Ali, the director of Ranbir-Nargis upcoming film ‘Rockstar’ has managed to get Ranbir Kapoor to serenade the workers of Mumbai’s biggest red light district in Grant Road for a sequence in the film.
A source informed, “And Imtiaz Ali was keen on shooting at an actual brothel, instead of creating a set and using junior artists.
On the day of the shoot, the women were excited to meet Ranbir. Initially, they were also nervous about the shoot. They welcomed the crew and also served them the local breakfast of chai and pav. After a short introductory session and some light hearted conversation, they commenced shooting.”
The source added, “The sex workers were very shy initially. They were reluctant to face the camera. But Imtiaz and Ranbir spent some time talking to them to make them more comfortable. And then they commenced shooting.”
