With just a few days left for Sanju‘s release, Ranbir Kapoor is the talk of the town. While we are waiting on the edge of our seats for Sanju, there’s yet another project Ranbir is quite pumped up about. It’s his best friend Ayan Mukherji‘s movie, Brahmastra. This film is said to be the most ambitious project taken up by both Ayan and Ranbir and is slated for release in August 2019. There’s been a buzz around B-Town that the upcoming flick will be a superhero drama with Ranbir’s character apparently having the power to unleash fire from his palms.

Woah! Giving us a little Scarlett Witch feels, no?

But talking to Mid Day, Ranbir was quick to clear off clarify that Brahmastra does not really belong to the superhero genre.

It is actually a supernatural romantic fairy tale at heart. Ayan will never make a character that doesn’t have truth to it, or which is unbelievable. It’s too early to talk about the film, but it is something I am terribly excited about.

The movie will also star Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. The movie will be Ranbir’s third outing with Ayan after Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. With both their last movies being box office successes, there is a lot of expectation riding on Brahmastra.

Talking about the project, he says,

Apart from being my best friend and my favourite director, Ayan has worked on this film for six years. He is going to spend the next 10 years of his life on this trilogy. So when the first part is complete, the audience will know it’s not the end. That is something really exciting for me as an actor.

This also means that Ranbir will be tied up with the movie for the next 10 years of his life as well, but he mentioned that he will be taking breathers between first, second and third installments of the film.

After the first film is out, we’ll shoot the second part and then the third. Between every part, Ayan has allowed me to do two films, which is great.

This is probably the first movie of its kind and we can’t wait for it!
