Ranbir Kapoor has always been experimenting with the kind of roles he picks up, even though it has made him suffer as a performer since a considerable number of his movies have faced a tough time at the box office. But the man never disappoints his fans when it comes to showcasing his versatility and acting ability. He moulds in any character and how! Last year, he not only collected box office numbers with Sanju but also collected several awards, deservedly so. After about a year and a half of his last release, he will come back to the big screen in Brahmastra.
The movie is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and any update regarding it will have his fans hooked. This fantasy adventure by Ayan Mukerji is touted to be a one of a kind film which, a kind which has never been seen before in the Indian cinema. Apart from the cast, title and the logo of the film, which the team unveiled at the Kumbh Mela a few months ago, nothing has been revealed officially from the makers. But an insider apparently has leaked the role description of Ranbir Kapoor’s character in the film. A Mid-Day report quoted a source as saying,
“Ranbir plays a DJ who walks out of his house against his father’s wishes. The story then traces his journey as he tries to fulfil his dreams and discovers his superpowers in the process.”
In the movie, all the characters would possess some or the other kind of superpowers and Ranbir allegedly will have the power to unleash fire from his palms. The source further spilled,
“The film has some high octane action sequences. Ranbir trained in traditional Indian martial arts, including Kalaripayattu and Varma Kalai, before the film went on floors in 2017.”
The movie would feature Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor together for the first time on the big screen. Earlier, Alia had shared her working experience with her real life beau and had said,
“When I set out to work with him, I was thinking that I will understand his process of acting, but there’s no process. He is like me, he acts in front of the camera, and suddenly off camera, he is seen eating chocolates, or chatting, wanting to know what is the gossip of the day. He is very hard working, so effortless and that is the beauty.”
Talking about Brahmastra, Ranbir had previously termed the film to be ‘a modern-day fairy-tale’ with “all the characters in it having supernatural powers.” The actor was quoted as saying,
“Ayan, my best friend, has taken five years to write this film. He has written it in three parts and it’s a new type of film.”
Along with Ranbir Alia, the cast of the film also includes Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, and Mouni Roy playing pivotal roles in the movie. Brahmastra would also feature a cameo appearance by South Indian Cinema superstar Nagarjuna. The movie will be a trilogy whose first part would hit the theatres around Christmas 2019.
