South’s superstar Nagarjuna has come onboard to join Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in Ayan Mukherji’s next film, Brahmastra.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, Nagarjuna will be joining the film sets on Tuesday and will be appearing in a Hindi film after more than a decade.
If reports are to believed, the he was eager to work in a Hindi film for a long time. However, he never found the appropriate project to make his comeback in Bollywood. Things took a different turn when Brahmastra was offered to him and the actor jumped on to be a part of Mukherji’s ambitious project.
Nagarjuna made his Bollywood debut 27 years ago in Shiva and went on to appear in films like Khuda-Gawah, Angaaray and LOC Kargil.
Talking about Brahmastra, the film has been in talks for more than three years now and is an extensive work of director Mukherji, who has worked on the film for more than six years. It’s the first film in a fantasy adventure trilogy and will depict both modern and historical eras.
In an interview to Mid-Day, Ranbir shared, “It’s actually a supernatural romantic fairy tale at heart. Ayan will never make a character that doesn’t have truth to it, or which is unbelievable. It’s too early to talk about the film, but it is something I am terribly excited about.”
Brahmastra starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir and Alia is scheduled for release on August 15, 2019.
