Dian Penty will Rock with Ranbir

Rumors were there that first, Katrina, then Sonam and the last Anushka will be paired with Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali’s next film Rockstar. But rumors are always rumors not real, finally Imtiaz decided to cast 25-year-old model Diana Penty opposite to Ranbir Kapoor in his next flick, Rockstar.

Initially, Imtiaz approached Katrina for the lead character but she refused to work, then Anushka Sharma and even Kareena Kapoor doing the film. Ranbir didn’t want to be paired romantically with sister Kareena. He was initially supposed to make the film with John Abraham and UTV but then he went on to make Love Aaj Kal.

Incidentally, Diana has also done an ad film for a mobile service provider with Ranbir. Rock Star is produced by Ashtavinayak, who had also produced Jab We Met. Ranbir Kapoor is learning to play the guitar for the film. Imtiaz Ali has scouted for locations in Prague and New Delhi. AR Rahman has scored the music for the film which is likely to release around Christmas 2010.
