Beginnings. Tel Aviv, Israel… Beginning of 2018, and the beginning of many things… We were in Tel Aviv to prepare for our first shooting schedule with a very special member of our team, and it marked the beginning of Ranbir and Alia working together for the movie and getting to know each other… Brahmāstra has come with a lot of travel, to find creative collaborations everywhere in the world… something I hope will add greatly to the film eventually 🤞💥 #brahmastra
The source revealed that the reason behind this schedule is to capture the Himalayas. The movie has had multiple schedules so far from London, New York, Scotland, and lastly Varanasi where all the characters meet for the first time in the movie. According to the source, all the Indian locations used in the story will reference the central characters. So, during the Manali schedule, the story of Shiva’s origin and self-discovery will be shown.
The source revealed that Ranbir Kapoor’s character will emit fire from his palms, “The first instalment in the trilogy narrates Shiva’s discovery of the ‘Agni’ within him.”
‘Brahmastra’ was to initially release on Christmas 2019, but now the release of the movie all depends on when the VFX work is complete. The aim is to release it in mid-2020.
