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."
Earlier this month, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt completed their London schedule for the film. Later, the duo headed with the Brahmastra team to Ramnagar Fort and Chet Singh Fort in Varanasi.
It is known that every character in the film possesses superpowers, with Ranbir Kapoor's character is 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.

Talking about the film, the release of Ayan Mukerji's dream project Brahmastra has been postponed. 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.
