Like Karan said, the movie will go on floors in February but Alia had started prepping for Brahmastra way before. Alia, who will also co-star with Ranveer Singh in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, wants to be at the top of her game and started going through scripts some two months ago.
Not much is known about the Ayan Mukerji-film but we can get an idea about Ranbir Kapoor's character, who started prepping for his role in November. In Instagram videos, he was spotted taking DJ lessons at New York's The Foxgrove. Talking about the film's storyline, the director had told PTI: "In its core it has romance as an element but it has got a new flavour to it." He also said: "It's a huge project and lot of people have faith in it and in me so I need to deliver for my own career, for the producer, the actors and the entire crew."
Brahmastra marks Karan Johar's fourth collaboration with Ranbir and Ayan's third with the actor. Previously, Ranbir has headlined the cast of Karan-directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ayan-directed Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - all films produced by Dharma Productions.
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra will be made as a trilogy, the first part of which is expected to be ready for release in 2019.
