The first part will see Ranbir play Shiva, a man with special powers.
According to a report by Bollywood Hungama, details about the story of Brahmastra is being kept under covers and the shoot was going on under the spread of tight security. The report added that the first instalment of the franchise is expected to get a theatrical release in five Indian languages, namely Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. The project is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios.
Apart from Ranbir and Alia, the film also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy. The movie is likely to wrap up its shooting schedule soon.
Brahmastra marks the first on-screen pairing of Ranbir and Alia. This fantasy fiction is being developed for quite a while now, having been announced as the first edition of a trilogy.
It was earlier scheduled to release in December 2019 but was pushed to summer 2020, as Mukherji had said he needed more time in order to get the film's VFX right. In February last year, the team announced a December 2020 release, but the film was further delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now the film is expected to hit the screens in 2021.
