Director Ayan Mukerji’s (Wake Up Sid, yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani) superhero film, Brahmastra, has been in the news for some time now. From the first-time pairing of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt to the unique concept the film has been making all the right noises, which makes this next announcement all the more exciting.
Dharma Productions, who’s bankrolling the film, have officially announced that it will be titled Brahmastra, which seems like a perfect name for a film revolving around superpowers. What’s more, Ranbir and Alia will be joined by none other than the megastar of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, who’s salted to play a pivotal role in the film. For now, we can only speculate whether his role will be positive or negative, but the fact that we’ll be seeing the Big B alongside arguably the two best actors of the young generation is reason enough to celebrate.
But that’s not it; there’s more good news. Brahmastra isalready been envisaged as a trilogy, and will be the first of three films in an epic fantasy adventure series.
