As Brahmastra is nearing the release date, the makers are making sure to keep the momentum high. Recently, Karan Johar dropped a new video on his Instagram handle featuring Vanar Astra. In the short clip, we can see Vanar Astra in a fight scene. Sharing the post, Karan captioned it as, "The extraordinary power of Vanarastra will unfold in just 8 days!". Soon after he shared the post, Shah Rukh Khan's fans flooded the comment section. A fan commented, "Sharukh Khan...killing it," while another wrote, "This is SRK, followed by fire emoticons. For those who don't know, a few weeks ago, a clip went viral on the Internet. The clip showed a frontal shot of SRK, kneeling with his arms opened wide, spliced with footage of the Vanar Astra - a glowing ape-like silhouette - from the film.

Meanwhile, Mouni Roy, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, confirmed Shah Rukh Khan's cameo appearance in the movie. She said, "My character is obviously derived from one of his fantasy fiction i.e. Ayan's brainchild. But also you know when you are working with people like Ranbir, Alia, Bachchan Sir, Nagarjuna Sir, Nagarjuna Sir. Shah Rukh Sir also plays a guest appearance... being a part of this world is a privilege. I suddenly kind of realized why they are where they are in life."

Helmed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, Brahmastra stars Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in the lead. The movie is slated to hit the theatres on September 9.
