Ranbir Kapoor's father Rishi Kapoor has featured in several films with Amitabh Bachchan including 1983 film Coolie, 1991's Ajooba, 1981's Naseeb and 1977's Amar Akbar Anthony among others.

This is not the first time when Amitabh Bachchan praised Ranbir Kapoor. Earlier, in an interview with news agency IANS, Big B complimented Ranbir Kapoor and said, "His face is God's blessing. He doesn't seem to make any effort to convey emotions whereas I've to constantly struggle to express myself and ask the director to help me."
The 37-year-old actor had replied, "I think I can't get bigger compliment than that. Of course, you feel great. Bachchan saab is like family to me so, I always feel that he is being extra sweet because he treats (me) like family."
In another post from last year, Amitabh Bachchan thanked Ranbir for giving him the "elixir of life." Sharing a picture with the actor Big B captioned, "Thank you Ranbir Kapoor for giving me the elixir of life. Still buzzing buddy Ranbir Kapoor."
Apart from Alia, Ranbir and Big B, Brahmastra also stars Mouni Roy, Dimple Kapadia and Akkineni Nagarjuna in key roles. Shah Rukh Khan will reportedly make a guest appearance in the film.
Brahmastra is a fantasy trilogy. The film's first part is slated to release on December 4. Brahmastra has been produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
