Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra, produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, is a trilogy. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy. The first part is expected to hit the screens in August 2019. Major portions of Brahmastra are being shot in Bulgaria. Two schedules of the film are complete now.
Meanwhile, Brahmastra also features in headlines on and off due to Ranbir and Alia's rumoured romance. However, the duo haven't acknowledged a romance as of yet. Brahmastra is Ranbir and Alia's first film together.
Ranbir Kapoor's last release film was the extremely successful Sanju, based on actor Sanjay Dutt's life. Alia Bhatt was last seen in Meghna Gulzar's Raazi, which was also a blockbuster at the box office. Her next release is Gully Boy, opposite Ranveer Singh.
