New Delhi: Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Rockstar’ is in for a tough competition as it releases on the same date as Frieda Pinto and Henry Cavill starrer ‘Immortals’.
The Imtiaz Ali directed film which also stars Nargis Fakhri in the lead will hit the theatres on November 11 along with Tarsem Singh’s ‘Immortals’.
Although the content of the film is varied as ‘Rockstar’ is a contemporary film and ‘Immortals’ is a tale of Olympian Gods and Titans. It follows the historic journey of Theseus, the mortal who rose to save the Gods as part of a Greek epic via his next ‘Immortals’.
Singh who is of an Indian origin, is known for his films like ‘The Cell’ and ‘The Fall’. He is set to release the film worldwide and in 600 cinemas in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu while ‘Rockstar’ will release worldwide with over 2000 prints.
Pinto, who is of an Indian origin as well and whose last release `Planet Of The Apes` didn`t do quite well at the box office will be competing against debutant Nargis, a half Czech-half Pakistani.
Ranbir will be seen essaying Rockstar Jordon in the film and Cavill as Theseus in ‘Immortal’
