A source informed Mumbai Mirror, “She will be seen opposite Nagarjuna in the film. It is to Karan’s credit that he could get the nod from Dimple.”

Brahmastra will be a supernatural romantic fairy tale and a first of its trilogy that has been planned by Dharma Productions. Also starring Amitabh Bachchan, the film is slated to release on Independence Day in 2019. It also has Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt as the leading pair.

The veteran National award-winning actress has had sporadic appearances on screen in recent years. One of her most memorable performances in the past few years has been that of Rosalina 'Rosie' Euchaistica in Finding Fanny. The quirky mother-in-law to Deepika Padukone's character was much appreciated by the audience in Homi Adajania's satirical comedy.

The following year, Kapadia was seen in the sequel to Anees Bazmee's Welcome where she played Poonam aka Maharani Padmavati who tries to con Dubai-based criminal-turned-businessmen Uday Shetty and Majnu Pandey.
