mid-day has learnt that Ranbir Kapoor will be seen playing a DJ in the Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt starrer. A source revealed, "Ranbir plays a DJ who walks out of his house against his father's wishes. The story then traces his journey as he tries to fulfil his dreams and discovers his superpowers in the process."
It is known that every character in the film possesses superpowers, with Kapoor's character believed to have the power to unleash fire from his palms. The actor has undergone training in various forms of martial arts for the role. "The film has some high octane action sequences. Ranbir trained in traditional Indian martial arts, including Kalaripayattu and Varma Kalai, before the film went on floors in 2017," added the source.
The fantasy drama film, which was initially scheduled to release around Christmas this year, will now hit the big screens in summer 2020. Ayan announced the news on his Instagram account.
Apart from Brahmastra trilogy, Ranbir Kapoor will also be a part of Shamshera, Luv Ranjan's directorial venture, which also stars Ajay Devgn.
Brahmastra is a fantasy trilogy in which Ranbir will be seen playing Shiva while Alia will be seen playing a character called Isha. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan. This will be the first time the three will be seen sharing screen space together.
Kiara Advani and Shahid Kapoor were also clicked at the Mumbai airport. It seems like the duo is leaving the city for their promotional their upcoming film, Kabir Khan. The actress was seen wearing a pink and white Indian attire.
In a media interaction, Kiara Advani said: "Through this film, we are trying to say do not go on a self-destruction path as it is not good for you and your loved ones. We are not propagating that or glamorising that in any way. One should not do what Kabir is doing."
"For me, it is ok to be a protective lover but there is a thin line between becoming an obsessive lover and a protective one. Kabir is not obsessive, he is a protective lover. He loves her a lot and she is head over heels in love with him. It is a passionate, intense, innocent and raw love story," Kiara Advani further added.
Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani's chemistry has intrigued the audience for more from the actors. While Shahid plays a self-destructive alcoholic, his performance has been widely applauded in the trailer. This film is a recreation of the Telugu drama Arjun Reddy that sees its protagonist become aggressive and an alcoholic after a failed romance.
Kabir Singh, a T-Series and Cine1 Studios presentation, is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde. The Film releases on June 21, 2019.
