Just a few hours ago, Alia Bhatt had shared a behind-the-scenes selfie on her Instagram story. The photo featured her make-up artist Puneet B Saini, hairstylist Priyanka Borkar and also Ranbir Kapoor. The girls posed together for the photo while Ranbir Kapoor appeared to be busy capturing the picturesque landscapes of Bulgaria. Here's the photo.
Mouni Roy, who is also in Bulgaria shooting for the film, shared a photo with Nagarjuna and Ayan Mukerji.
Nagarjuna in an interview to news agency IANS had earlier told why he chose to do the film: "Brahmastra was impressive from the moment it came to me. I said 'yes' immediately and now, here I am on my way to shoot for it. I am looking forward to it." With Brahmastra, Nagarjuna is making his comeback in Bollywood films after 15 years. The 58-year-old actor was last seen in LOC Kargil, which also featured Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn.
Meanwhile, Brahmastra also reunites Nagarjuna with Amitabh Bachchan with whom he had previously co-starred in Khuda Gawah (1992).
As evident from the photos on social media, a lot is happening on the sets of Brahmastra. But we are yet to decipher details about the roles the actors are playing in the film. Ranbir Kapoor had divulged (a little) about what Brahmastra is all about. "It is actually a supernatural romantic fairy tale at heart. Ayan (film's director Ayan Mukerji) 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," said Ranbir.
The first part of the fantasy trilogy is expected to release in August next year.
