Ranbir Kapoor is getting ready for his upcoming magnum opus Brahmastra, in which he co-stars with Alia Bhatt.
Ranbir Kapoor is ecstatic about his upcoming Ayan Mukerji-directed film Brahmastra, the first instalment of which will hit theatres in September of this year. When asked about the project, the actor stated that he and Alia Bhatt were both very excited about Ayan’s creation.
“Alia and I were just three best friends sitting and dreaming this film with Ayan, and being soldiers to him,” Kapoor explained to Variety.com. “We were really excited and really privileged to be part of this film and part of this vision,” he continued, “and as an actor, I would do it over and over again.”
Ranbir also stated that the film would “connect to a large audience” because it is “deeply rooted in Indian culture.”
“It’s deeply rooted in Indian culture, and we had the chance to create our own Marvel, which Ayan is attempting with his Astraverse.” “Any film, any good compelling story, made in your culture, authentically, in its true form, will connect with a large audience,” Kapoor concluded.
Brahmastra is based on Indian mythology and takes place in modern India, where a secret society known as the Brahmansh has guarded Astras (divine weapons) created in ancient India for generations. The Brahmastra, the most powerful of these, is now awakening and threatens to destroy the universe. Ranbir’s character has superpowers in the film. In contrast, Mouni Roy plays the antagonist to Ranbir’s Shiva. Ranbir’s love interest is played by Alia Bhatt. Brahmastra is Ranbir and Alia’s first film following their April wedding.
Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna also play important roles in the film, which will be released on September 9 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
