Designer Rahul Nanda and Polish illustrator Grzegorz Domaradzki both claim they have designed the 'Rockstar' posters

The image of Ranbir Kapoor with long locks and an overgrown beard, looking grim yet rebellious, on the posters of Rockstar gave us the first peek into Imtiaz Ali's film.

However, contrary to the general notion that it was publicity designer Rahul Nanda who created the poster, we came across the official website of a Polish illustrator and web designer, Grzegorz Domaradzki, who claimed that the posters of the film have been designed by him.

He recently spoke in an interview about how he was approached by a Mumbai-based company to design posters for the film and how much he enjoyed the process. He also explained the whole designing process along with the pictures of his sketches.

Says Nanda, "The basic inspiration came from the film. When I read the script I felt why not have a rebellious looking campaign, a bit more evolved and a bit more artistic?" As expected, he took credit for designing the posters and did not mention anyone else's contribution towards the process.

However, when we informed him about Grzegorz's claims, he altered his statements quite a few times. First he said, "There are two international designers who have worked on these posters." Then he called back and said, "I have designed the posters and he (Grzegorz) just reproduced them in the form of paintings."

He called back yet again and said, "The Polish designer is under contract. He is trying to gain publicity out of this." The fourth time he called back, saying, "The idea was developed by me. I sent him the stills from the movie."

The film's producer Rupen Amlani also took Nanda's side, stating, "Rahul has designed the posters and Grzegorz has painted on it"

Grzegorz Domaradzki reverted to us, saying, "First of all, I'm under a confidentiality contract with Rahul Nanda and I cannot reveal too many details about the project.

Rahul Nanda art directed me throughout the project and provided me with the photographs and general concept and idea for the posters. I made precise pencil drawings and later enhanced them on the computer creating digital paintings."
