Brahmastra is one movie from Bollywood for which everyone has been looking forward. It is expected to have a unique storyline. Lead pair of the movie Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor is certainly one of the reasons behind huge expectation also. First time, Alia and Ranbir have been paired opposite each other in this movie. Most of the people may not be aware of the fact that Alia has not been the first choice for the movie Brahmastra.
During an interview, Alia has disclosed the fact that she has requested director Ayan Mukerjee to cast her in this movie. She has said, “The idea for Brahmastra was conceived long back when Ayan (Mukerji, director) had just done Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. I wanted to work with him and I have always wanted to work with Ranbir as well. I pleaded to Ayan that please cast me with him.” Now, Ayan may not regret the decision of casting Alia in the movie as everyone is quite aware of her talent. So, we will expect to see some magic onscreen with Brahmastra.
From the time of Ranbir’s debut in Bollywood with Saawariya in 2007, Alia has been a huge admirer of the actor and wanted to act with him in movies. So, Alia has added “With Ranbir, it is a completely different experience because I have always admired him. He is my favourite actor since he made his debut. He will always remain my favourite because he is so honest and effortless. 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.”
Release of Brahmastra is scheduled on 20th December, 2019 during Christmas weekend. Logo of Brahmastra has been launched recently at Kumbh Mela. A video has been released also where you can hear the voices of Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan.
