For Ranbir Kapoor, the year 2018 has been an amazing one as he has Rajkumar Hirani’s much-awaited Sanju. Ranbir has two releases for next year — Ayan Mukherji’s Brahmastra and Yash Raj Films Shamshera.
As he is gearing up for Sanju release, Ranbir has commenced shooting for Ayan Mukherji’s film Brahmastra, also starring Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy in the lead role. This is going to be the first time Alia and Ranbir will be sharing the silver screen.
In an interaction with Mid Day during the promotions of Sanju, Ranbir talked about Brahmastra not being a superhero genre. He said, “It is 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.”’
Further, he talked about his best friend and filmmaker Ayan Mukherji and said, “Apart from being my best friend and my favourite director, Ayan has worked on this film for six years. He is going to spend the next 10 years of his life on this trilogy. So when the first part is complete, the audience will know it’s not the end. That is something really exciting for me as an actor.”
The film has completed its first schedule in Bulgaria and in latest, Amitabh Bachchan has joined the duo for the shooting of the film in Mumbai. The film is expected to be released on 15 August 2019.
