Ranbir Kapoor delivered a terrific performance in Ayan Mukerji directorial Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva. Brahmastra also starred Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. Shah Rukh Khan made a cameo in the film. Ranbir played the role of Shiva in the fantasy film which was released in September this year. Now, did you know Ranbir was once offered to play the second lead in a Star Wars film, a few years ago? And that he declined the offer for Brahmasta?

Ranbir had earlier revealed why he refused to be a part of the film. In an interview from 2016 with Rajeev Masand, Ranbir confessed that he was scared of auditioning. The actor said, “I was asked to audition as the second lead in Star Wars a couple of years back. I have a fear of auditioning. It’s more a fear from not having that much faith in my talent.”

The actor further added that the offer did not interest him, and Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra intrigued him more. He went on to add, “Let’s make our own Star Wars. Let’s not Chase what’s there. That’s great but I have an opportunity here and I don’t think Ayan is less than a JJ Abrams or a George Lucas. Let me work with him and make our own Star Wars.”

Well, this year, Brahmastra released in theatres. The film performed well at the box office. The film was also recently released on Disney+Hotstar. Fans are praising Ranbir Kapoor, Alia and the Brahmastra star cast for their terrific acts in Ayan’s film. Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev will release in 2025.

On the other hand, Ranbir and Alia Bhatt welcomed their first child, a Baby girl, on Sunday.
