Shooting in Kashmir has turned out to be a trip down memory lane for Ranbir. Shooting in the beautiful valley and at places where his dad Rishi Kapoor used to jump and dance during the prime of his career has made Ranbir Kapoor a bit emotional.
It must be recalled that Ranbir's parents, especially his dad; Rishi Kapoor, has shot his major hits in Kashmir. So, the place holds a huge significance for the Kapoor family.
According to eyewitnesses, "Ranbir was overwhelmed by the love that the people of Kashmir showered on him while shooting for Imtiaz Ali's ROCKSTAR. There were people in the crowd who had worked with his dad too. It was an emotional bonding for the young Kapoor who looked like a typical Kashmiri boy next door in the traditional attire. Ranbir also savoured the special Kashmiri food and giving him company was Nargis Fakhri his co-star in the film. The young star was shooting in the same location where his dad has shot many of his films in the past."
The Kapoor family's tryst with Kashmir goes back to decades. From Shammi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and now Ranbir Kapoor, this connect stays uninterrupted.
