A downtown boy in Delhi, nurtures dreams of becoming another Jim Morrison. The story revolves around 2 characters Janardhan aka Jordan (Ranbir Kapoor) and Heer (Nargis Fakhri) and their feelings towards each other. But before he can evolve on his creative journey and transformed into Jordan, the real Rockstar, ends up his rest of life with anguished and disheartened, by the loss of Heer, whom he loved passionately and whose death is unintentionally caused by Jordan himself.

- Ranbir Kapoor had to take many efforts to transform himself into a rock star. He practiced guitar at A. R. Rahman's studio for many days, read Kurt Cobain's biography and familiarized himself with him.
- The film was shot in reverse as the crew didn't want to break the continuity of Ranbir Kapoor's hairstyle. So the climax with long hair was shot first.
- During the Sadda Haq sequence several scenes show Tibetans and Jordan performing in front of them. Several posters have 'give us our rights' written on them. The song literally means the same. This is an indirect support of the Tibetan cause of freedom from China from Imtiaz Ali. He has also stated that his next movie would be directly based on the same. Though the posters directly showing the word 'Tibet', it was blurred in the theatrical version.
- The porn film 'Jungli Jawani' that Jordan and Nargis watch is actually edited from scenes of a B-grade film 'Jungle Love'.
- Ranbir Kapoor won his first ever Best Actor Award at the 2012 Filmfare Awards.
- Mark Shammi Kapoor's last appearance in a feature film who died on August 14, 2011.
- Ranbhir Kapoor was on drugs during the film to make his character believeable.
- Shammi Kapoor acted with his Grand Nephew Ranbhir Kapoor for the first and last time.
- First time in Bollywood that a Kashmiri Pandit wedding was shown, Nargis played the role of Kashmiri Pandit.
