New Delhi:

Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar released on November 11, nine years ago. The film marked actress Sanjana Sanghi's stepping stone in Bollywood. Celebrating her foray in movies almost a decade ago, the 24-year-old actress recalled the time she received the good news - that she's been cast in Rockstar. Sanjana said she was just 13 then and was in the middle of school when she got the news. "I can remember a tiny 13-year-old me getting the surreal news that I was going to be 'Mandy' in Rockstar, right in middle of a school day like it was yesterday." Sanjana Sanghi co-starred with Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri in Rockstar - she played the role of Nargis' sister.

"I didn't grow up ever imagining myself in the movies, and after experiencing pure cinematic magic on the sets of Rockstar as a child, I couldn't imagine my life without the movies," Sanjana Sanghi added to her post, which is a compilation of her scenes from Rockstar. "Unending gratitude for each and every one who has been a part Rockstar's journey; to make it one that can never be forgotten and one that has shaped me in a countless number of ways," she added.
