Director Imtiaz Ali, who directed "Rockstar", based on the life of a singer, reveals he had once taken up music lessons for sometime, but then he gave it up for his love for cricket.

"I used to learn Indian classical vocals when I was very young. The problem was it would happen at the same time when I went down to play cricket. So, ultimately over a few months, cricket won," the 41-year-old said here Monday at the launch of Chandrima Pal's book "A Song For I."

"I think I must have learnt (music) for a year and of course, it took me less than a year to forget everything. I learnt raag Bhairav and raag Bhopali. I learnt these two raags first and there was a third one that I don't even remember," he added.

Besides "Rockstar", Imtiaz has directed three films - "Socha Na Tha", "Jab We Met" and "Love Aaj Kal". Interestingly, the music of his films has always struck a chord with viewers.
