Ayan Mukerji’s directorial Brahmastra was announced in 2017. The action fantasy film that is being made into a trilogy has been in the making for the last three years. The film was first supposed to hit the silver screens on August 15, 2019. However later its release was pushed to Christmas 2019 and then to Summer 2020 due to pending VFX work.

Later the makers announced in February 2020 that its final release date is 4 December 2020. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the film’s release date was further delayed. And now that Ranbir Kapoor has tested positive for Covid-19, the film’s shoot has been stalled again. 

Neetu Kapoor has confirmed that Ranbir Kapoor has contracted the deadly Coronavirus. And we told you exclusively that Gangubai Kathiawadi director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has tested positive for Covid. Now following Bhansali’s diagnosis, Alia Bhatt‘s test results are also awaited. The actress is currently quarantining.

Now that both Alia and Ranbir are under quarantine, so nothing will happen for the next two weeks. That means the shooting of both the films- Gangubai Kathiawadi and Brahmastra will take a hit.

Ever since its inception, Ranbir and Alia starrer Brahmastra has faced several hurdles. First, its pending VFX work, then Coronavirus induced lockdown and now it’s lead actors’ being under quarantine, looks like this Ayan Mukerji directorial will take some more time to see the light of the day.
