Filmmaker Ayan Mukerji’s fantasy-drama trilogy Brahmastra is turning out to be an ambitious project with an impressive ensemble cast. Apart from Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead, the film boasts of a few other A-list actors who have agreed to be a part of the film.
Telugu star Nagarjuna recently revealed that he has a meaty role in the film. Pictures of him with the film’s cast and crew in Bulgaria also did the rounds on social media. The project will mark the actor’s return to the Hindi film industry after 15 years. His last Hindi film was LoC Kargil.

According to Mumbai Mirror, veteran actress Dimple Kapadia will be joining the film’s second schedule. The actress will be returning to the screen after three years. “She will be seen opposite Nagarjuna in the film. It is to Karan’s credit that he could get the nod from Dimple,” added the report. Her last two films were Finding Fanny and Welcome Back.
Pictures of Amitabh Bachchan rehearsing with Ayan, Alia and Ranbir have already flooded the social media. Writing about his experience on the sets of Brahmastra, the actor wrote on his blog: “The absolute joy of being in the company of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia as I begin my first day with these two impeccable artists for the new venture Brahmastra… The ease with which they work and rehearse and comply to the words and needs of the director is a learning for me .. I love both and I love the work that they keep putting out year after year .. Indian cinema is in very good hands .. and I can only wish it greater glory !
It is a bit awkward for me to be in the midst of this production where the average age on set is about 26 .. and I am the largest misfit at 76 .. I mean this is ridiculous .. 76 !!”
The film will also have Mouni Roy in a supporting role.
Meanwhile, the team has wrapped up the first schedule of the superhero film in Bulgaria. “It is set in India as it exists today but the name of the film is Brahmastra because the energy, wisdom and powers in the film come from ancient India. As far as costumes are concerned, there are some which may not be the way you would expect them to be,” Ayan said earlier.
