A Bollywood superstar has proved he's the kind of actor who takes his profession seriously by learning how to play a musical instrument for his new movie.

Ranbir Kapoor stars in the movie Rockstar as Jordan, a musician who is super-skilled on the electric guitar.

"I had no idea how to play the guitar and neither can I sing," he said.

"But since the character was that of a musician, I felt it was important to learn how to play the guitar because when I would perform on the stage before large audiences, they would feel truth behind it."

The soundtrack to the film is scored by legendry Indian composer AR Rahman, who is currently busy working with Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, Dave Stewart and Damian Marley in the super group known as Super Heavy.

Kapoor first came to fame in his breakthrough movie Saawariya in 2007, which is based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's White Nights.

For the role he won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut.
