Amid the anticipation around Brahmastra 2, filmmaker Ayan Mukerji recently spilled beans about the film’s release date, cast, and more. In the interview, he also disclosed if Hrithik, Ranveer, or Yash will be in the film.
Brahmastra 2 coming soon
Brahmastra, which starred Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role, was released in 2022 and was a commercial hit, giving Bollywood a breather during its worst phase. The sequel to the film is currently being developed, and many people are keen to know more about it.
Ayan Mukerji, in a recent interview, revealed that Brahmastra 2 will be released in theaters sooner than expected. The movie, which is an action-adventure drama, is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production.
He also mentioned that he doesn’t want to keep the audience waiting too long as it could negatively affect their enthusiasm for the franchise.
“We’re at it. [It will take] a couple of years. And that’s one hundred percent better than ten years. If we take another ten years, nobody will come to watch Brahmastra 2. We’re going to get it ready much before that,” Ayan told News 18.
Who will be Dev?
While Part One was Shiva’s (played by Ranbir Kapoor) story, the next installment will be about his father, Dev. In the movie, Dev’s character was not exposed fully, and only a figure was shown; therefore, who would play the role became a topic of debate on social media.
Several fans suggested that Hrithik Roshan had been approached for the role; later, it was also stated that Ranveer Singh might play Dev. The recent report also added that Kannada star Yash has been roped in for the same. Now, the filmmaker has addressed all these rumors and reports.
On being asked if these are the actors in talks to play Shiva’s father, Ayan Mukerji chose to keep details under wraps and said, “There’s no answer for this question yet. We’ll have to wait.”
Brahmastra is a trilogy developed by Ayan Mukerji. Apart from Ranbir, the first part also starred Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Akkineni Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. Shah Rukh Khan made a special appearance as Vanar Astra in the film.
