Ranbir Kapoor is enthusiastic about his next Ayan Mukerji film Brahmastra, the first portion of which will be released in theatres in September. When asked about the movie, the actor said that he and Alia Bhatt were both really thrilled about Ayan’s idea.

Ranbir Kapoor said, “We were just three best friends, Alia and I, sitting and dreaming this film with Ayan, and being soldiers to him. We were really excited and really privileged to be part of this film and part of this vision so selfishly as an actor that I would do it over and over again.”

Ranbir further stated that the film will “connect to a huge audience” since it is “deeply rooted in Indian culture.” Ranbir further stated that the film will “connect to a huge audience” since it is “deeply rooted in Indian culture.” 

“It’s deeply rooted in Indian culture, and we had the opportunity to create our own Marvel, which Ayan is trying to do with his Astraverse. Any film, any good compelling story, made in your culture, in an authentic way, in a true form, will connect to a large audience,” he said.

Brahmastra is based on Indian mythology and is set in modern India, where for millennia, a secret organisation known as the Brahmansh has guarded Astras (holy weapons) produced in ancient India. The most powerful of them, the Brahmastra, is now awakening and threatens to destroy the entire cosmos. 

Ranbir’s character has abilities in the movie. On the other side, Mouni Roy portrays the adversary to Ranbir’s Shiva. Alia Bhatt portrays the love interest of Ranbir’s character. Brahmastra is Ranbir and Alia’s first film together since their April wedding.

Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna also feature in the film, which will be released on September 9 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
