On November 11th, 2011, Rockstar was released. Tibetans protested in Chennai and Dharmasala on the day of the film’s premiere, demanding that the Central Board of Film Certification remove portions depicting the Tibetan flag. The film earned mostly positive reviews at its initial release. The film’s stars, Kapoor and Rahman, were praised by critics, while the premise was panned. It was one of the year’s highest-grossing films, and it managed to appeal to the city’s youth.
