The duo was accompanied by Mohit Chauhan, who is the 'voice of Jordan' (Ranbir's character) in the film and producer Hiren Gandhi of Shree Ashtavinayak.

The Dargah, that is believed to be the originating source of qawwali, holds a very special place for the ROCKSTAR  team. Director Imtiaz Ali often frequented the Nizamuddin Dargah during the shooting of the film that stars Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri. Ranbir too, stayed there for a couple of days while shooting for the qawwali scene in the film that features the Dargah. AR Rahman (the film's music director) too, has often expressed his reverence for the place.

Arriving around 9pm, the team first offered the special chaadar at the tomb of Amir Khusro, a noted musician, scholar & poet, also known to be the 'father of qawwali'.

They then proceeded to join the famous Qawwals of the Dargah to celebrate the conclusion of the highly popular 4 day 'Urs of Hazrat Amir Khusro' that is held every year.

Ranbir Kapoor and Mohit Chauhan also performed on 'Kun Faaya Kun' - a aqawwali from the film. While Ranbir played the guitar by himself, Mohit sung the soulful number in his voice.

After an enchanting qawwali session that went on for about an hour, the ROCKSTAR team proceeded to interact with the media gathered at the venue.

ROCKSTAR is one of the most highly anticipated movies this year and has already generated a lot of buzz. After two back-to-back hits, Director Imtiaz Ali is back with yet another love story set in a musical backdrop.

ROCKSTAR releases in theatres on 11.11.11.
