Rockstar no longer happening?

Imtiaz Ali's mega project Rockstar that was to have cast John Abraham has been apparently sent to the backburner.

The story revolved around a bored businessman who takes the subway daily to his work place. Then he is suddenly transported to the world of rock n' roll music where he becomes a rockstar. The project was initially supposed to have been produced by UTV but now they are not doing the project.

Following this composer A R Rahman also opted out of the project. "Rahman was very interested since he could have done something different in this film but when UTV backed out, so did Rahman," says a close aide to the composer. Our reliable sources say that the project may not take off at all.

Incidentally, Imtiaz is busy with Saif Ali Khan's project with Deepika and another with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.
John has Nagesh Kukunoor’s Aashayein and Karan Johar-Tarun Mansukhani's Dostana to look forward to. The latter has cast him opposite Priyanka Chopra.
