After so many speculations about Katrina, Sonam, Anushka and Kareena to act in ‘Rockstar’ opposite Ranbir, finally it is a 25-year-old model, Diana Penty who has been chosen by the leading film director Imtiaz Ali.
In spite of so many Bollywood divas, the film maker has opted for a Mumbai-based model to act in his film.
“There were several rumors about the girl in Imtiaz Ali`s film. Imtiaz had almost finalized Anushka Sharma at one point of time. However, he eventually decided that he wanted a new girl for his film and has finally zeroed in on Diana Penty,” says the source.
The source added, “The film is being produced by Ashtavinayaka, which also made ‘Jab We Met’ with Imtiaz. ‘Rockstar’ is one of Imtiaz`s most ambitious projects. He was initially supposed to make the film with John Abraham and UTV but then he went on to make ‘Love Aaj Kal’. After ‘Love Aaj Kal’ released, he narrated the subject to Ranbir, who immediately agreed to do the film. Imtiaz had been considering various options for the female lead in ‘Rockstar’ and finally his wait is over.”
Diana would not be working with Ranbir for the first time as she had earlier done an advertisement for a mobile service with the actor. According to some reports she has also replaced Deepika in a cosmetic ad.
