Dharma Productions will collaborate with Fox Star Studios and Namit malhotra’s Prime Focus Limited for Brahmastra. Director Ayan Mukherji in an interview to a news agency had revealed on the movie’s plot and said that Ranbir will have to go through vigorous training regime as the film requires a lot of action shots and physical stuff. The Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani director had said that the movie (Brahmastra) will have romance as one of the elements but would have a completely new flavour to it.
The star trio of Brahmastra is currently busy with their respective schedules; Ranbir is wrapping up Sanjay Dutt’s biopic while Alia Bhatt’s Raazi is set to hit the screens soon. Amitabh Bachchan meanwhile, is busy shooting for Thugs Of Hindostan which also features Aamir Khan.
Earlier on October 10th Karan Johar had announced his collaboration with Akshay Kumar for Kesari which will be a movie based on ‘The Battle of Saragarhi’ and will hit the theaters on Holi, 2019.
