Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt to shoot last leg of Brahmastra in Varanasi
This is Ayan Mukerji and Ranbir Kapoor’s third collaboration after Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will shoot the last leg of their upcoming film, Brahmastra, in Varanasi. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, the superhero fantasy film was earlier shot in Mumbai, Tel Aviv, Sofia, London and other cities. The Varanasi schedule will begin at the end of this month and go on for 20 days. The crew has shortlisted locations like Ramnagar Fort and Chet Singh Fort for the shoot.
The first part of a planned trilogy, Brahmastra was initially slated for release this Christmas. However, as announced by the director last month, the film has been pushed to Summer 2020 due to pending post-production work.
Besides Ranbir and Alia, Brahmastra also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia, and Mouni Roy. The story revolves around a DJ named Shiva who comes to control ancient supernatural powers. This is Ayan Mukerji and Ranbir Kapoor’s third collaboration after Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
