Ayan Mukerji shares a photo of Ranbir Kapoor from an early look test for ‘Brahmastra’
‘Brahmastra’, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, is one of the most highly anticipated films of this year. The film, which is directed by Ayan Mukerji, is produced by Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions. ‘Brahmastra’ also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. The film has been shot in Bulgaria, Edinburgh, London and Mumbai. In the film, Ranbir’s character name is Shiva while Alia will play Isha.
Soon after the makers of ‘Brahmastra’ released the official logo, the film is creating a lot of buzz. In the video, we can hear Ranbir, Alia and Amitabh Bachchan talking about the existence of a secret weapon.
The video clip also shows an artifact floating in space until it combines with two other broken parts and forms the logo of the film with the title written over it.
And now, director Ayan Mukerji took to Instagram to share Ranbir’s look. In the photo, we can see Ranbir sporting a long hair and rugged look. Ayan also revealed that before Shiva, Ranbir’s character was named as Rumi.
Take a look:

Rumi. First, he was Rumi. Rumi with long hair. This image is from an early look test for the movie. Rumi said, ‘Love is the bridge between you and everything…’, and that feeling is the foundation we started building the protagonist of this movie on… But then, there was new inspiration, newer thoughts… Dragon became Brahmāstra, we gave Ranbir a haircut, and Rumi became… Shiva. #brahmastra #shivadiaries #memories #creativeprocess #evolving
‘Brahmastra’ is a trilogy and the first part of the series is titled ‘Love’. It will hit the theatres this Christmas.
Importantly, ‘Brahmastra’ marks the third collaboration between Ayan Mukerji and Ranbir Kapoor after ‘Wake Up Sid’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. On the other hand, this is Ranbir’s first collaboration with Alia Bhatt.
