CONFIRMED! Nagarjuna joins Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Brahmastra’
Recently, there were rumours of Nagarjuna being a part of Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, and Ranbir Kapoo starrer ‘Brahmastra’. And now, the South superstar has confirmed being a part of the film which is directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Karan Johar.
In a recent interview with IANS, Nagarjuna said, “Yes, I am doing ‘Brahmastra‘. It is my first Hindi film in a very long time. I can’t remember when was the last time I did a Hindi film. I think it was Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Zakhm’.”
Reminded that his last Hindi film was J.P. Dutta’s ‘LOC Kargil’ in 2003, the actor’s memory is nimbly nudged. “Oh yes, ‘LOC’. But that was a brief role, though a lot of fun to do. ‘Zakhm’ was my last full-fledged role in a Hindi film. I still remember Alia Bhatt as a child on Bhatt Saab’s set. Now I am working with her in ‘Brahmastra’. How time flies,” he added.
“My career in Andhra keeps me busy. I’ve not shown any inclination to do a Hindi film, though I’m open to doing films in any language if the set-up is good. ‘Brahmastra’ was impressive from the moment it came to me. I said ‘yes’ immediately and now here I am on my way to shoot for it. I am looking forward to it.”
Nagarjuna may have worked with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the past, but this time around, he is looking forward to sharing screen space with Alia, Ranbir and Mouni in this trilogy. When quipped about his character in ‘Brahmastra’, the actor did not reveal much saying, “I am not supposed to say much. To be honest, I’m not very sure of the extent of my role. But it’s a pivotal part. And they probably thought of me because the role suits my personality.”
The film also stars Mouni Roy in a lead role and it will hit theaters next year. ‘Brahmastra’ is the first part of the trilogy produced under the Dharma Production banner.
