Brahmastra director Ayan, who recently made his Instagram debut, is probably the most active user on the photo-sharing application, sharing the anecdotes about the making of his film. Ayan shared a picture with Alia, and revealed that he met the actress as a child when he was an 18-year-old. He also unveiled a picture of Ranbir, and said that the character was initially supposed to be called Rumi, before Shiva came along.
Beginnings. Tel Aviv, Israel... Beginning of 2018, and the beginning of many things... We were in Tel Aviv to prepare for our first shooting schedule with a very special member of our team, and it marked the beginning of Ranbir and Alia working together for the movie and getting to know each other... Brahmāstra has come with a lot of travel, to find creative collaborations everywhere in the world... something I hope will add greatly to the film eventually #brahmastra
Both, Dabbangg 3 and Brahmastra are highly awaited mega-budget films of the year. While Salman's Dabbangg is a third instalment in the successful franchise, Brahmastra is the first part of the fantasy trilogy. With a stellar star cast, a thriving production, it will be worth witnessing if one of the two films bow out from the clash.
