The Brahmastra trio of Ayan Mukerji and his lead actors Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are making their way back to Mumbai as they wrap the first schedule of their shoot in Bulgaria. To mark the occasion Alia shared a picture on Instagram with her co-actor Ranbir and ‘best friend’ Ayan Mukerji. She has captioned the post, “And it’s just the beginning.” Alia and Ranbir have been in Bulgaria a few weeks now to shoot for the first instalment in the fantasy adventure trilogy that’s backed by Karan Johar.
The Brahmastra team, which also features Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy, began filming the movie in February this year. Ever since the film went on floors, Karan Johar and Alia have been sharing several photos from the sets on their social media accounts. In fact, Alia’s 25th birthday was celebrated on the sets for which Ayan organised a small party for her. While Ranbir was MIA during the birthday celebrations, his mom Neetu Kapoor didn’t miss blessing her the actress on the special day.Talking about the film, Ayan had earlier said, “It’s a modern-day film set in India as it exists today. But the reason it’s called Brahmastra is that the energies, wisdom, powers in the film come from ancient India. That’s all I would say. There are some costumes maybe not the way you’d expect them to be. It’s a very big project of my life. All my hopes are on this film. I am very excited about the cast but I hope the film is even bigger than the cast. They have all come together because of the story and the theme of the film.”
It was reported this week that Alia injured her shoulder while shooting for an action sequence in the film and has been advised rest.
Alia will soon be seen alongside Ranveer Singh in Gully Boy but before that, she will be seen in Raazi opposite Vicky Kaushal.Brahmastra is slated to hit the screens on August 15, 2019.
