The best filmmaker Ayan Mukerji (Wake up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani) is coming back with a new box office hit movie “Brahmastra” starring Ranbir Kapoor in the male lead, opposite to Alia Bhatt. The upcoming movie is shooting in Manali and shows interesting on-screen chemistry between Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. The beautiful ice-filled mountains and amazing location in the background paint a lovely picture.
Brahmastra is the most different in the Bollywood industry. This mystical fantasy drama is a spectacular project that brings something new to the table. Alia in her recent interview said that Brahmastra belongs to a genre that hasn’t been explored in the Hindi cinema industry.
She said Ranbir and I have always maintained that Brahmastra is not a superhero film; it is a mystical fantasy drama. There is no reference [for comparison]. It’s a new film that is emerging in our industry. It could be a film that will make this industry proud and put us on a global pedestal. I don’t want to blow my own trumpet, but there’s immense faith in Ayan’s vision.
She also said Brahmastra is an important weapon that played a major role in the war of Mahabharata and Ramayana. So, when the layers of the story peeled one by one you easily understand why we launched it with drones at the Kumbh Mela.
Although the storyline of the movie is not revealed yet, as per Ayan fans, this fantasy movie will be inspired by the Amish novel ‘The Shiva trilogy’. The movie will be the reimage world of Shiva’s novel. Maybe the storyline or plot of the movie is not the same, but most probably the concept will be the same.
Every person is making its storyline about the movie but its exact concept is not revealed yet. Directors and other team members try its best to give this superhero movie, a visual marvel.
When the movie will be coming to the theatre?
The movie was supposed to hit the theatres this December. But as the VFX team requires more time to complete and perfect his vision for the movie, the movie release date is shifted to next year and it is expected to premiere in summer 2020.
Produced by Karan Johar (Student of the year, Dilwale dulhania le Jayega), the movie star various famous Bollywood personalities such as Amitabh Bachchan as Brahma (In antagonist role), Ranbir Kapoor as Shiva (Hero of the movie), Alia Bhatt as Isha (Shiva love interest), Mouni Roy as Poulomi ( The antagonist), Akkineni Nagarjuna as Vishnu and others. Shahrukh Khan also appears in a special role in this movie.
