The motion poster of Brahmastra is out. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will be seen as the lead actors in the film. Ranbir Kapoor will be seen essaying the role of Shiva who identifies his superpower – the power of fire – and sets on a journey to save the universe from Brahmastra.
Brahmastra is a fantasy trilogy bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The film will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. The first part of Brahmastra will be released on 09.09.2022. Apart from Alia and Ranbir, Nagarjuna, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Dimple Kapadia will be seen in important roles in the film. The second and third parts of Brahmastra will reportedly release in 2024 and 2026.
Alia Bhatt shared the motion poster on her Instagram and wrote, “His power lights from within. Here comes our Shiva! Brahmāstra Part One: Shiva – Releases in Cinemas on 09.09.2022”. In the video, one could see Ranbir’s world, where he is heard saying to Alia’s character “Kuch chal rha hai duniya mein Isha…aisa kuch jo normal logo ke samjh ke bahar hai”. Later, he says “kuch purani shaktiyan hai, kuch astra hai”.. Then Alia’s character asks “Yeh sab tumhe kyun dikh rha hai..Tum ho kaun Shiva” Soon Ranbir’s character emerges holding Lord Shiva’s ‘Trishula’.
During the movie’s motion poster preview, director Ayan Mukerji had shared, “I know the term superhero gets used with the film a lot because it is sort of in that genre. But in my mind, it is not a superhero film. It is a fantasy adventure epic. It is a modern mythology piece. Shiva is closer to a modern representation of a deva than a western superhero. He is a normal guy who is born with certain energy within him.”
