Ranbir’s Spiritual Visit
Ranbir Kapoor, Imtiaz Ali and singer Mohit Chauhan visited the Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah in Delhi on Monday to seek blessings of the musical saints for their upcoming film Rockstar. Ranbir also played the guitar to a qawwali at the dargah.
Arriving around 9 pm, the team first offered the special ‘chaadar’ at the tomb of Amir Khusro, the 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 (who is the voice of Ranbir's character Jordan in the film) also performed on ‘Kun Faaya Kun’ -- a qawwali 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.
“It was a very spiritual experience. I think we are lucky enough that Nizamuddin dargah gave us the opportunity to sing with the qawwals and sing the song with them at the dargah itself,” Ranbir told the media persons.
