Filmmaker Ayan Mukerji shares candid first pictures of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor from the sets of Brahmastra.
Ayan took to his social media profile and shared Alia Bhatt’s picture, which he captioned, “Director & Actress. Alia. Sunshine and Starlight! Fire, but also Wind and always Water...I met Alia when she was 18 and almost instantly she bombed her way into my life and my movies and my soul. Today, she’s not so little anymore and bombing us with too much beauty in Kalank’s beautiful trailer which dropped earlier... More on my journey (flying to the stars) with Alia over the next few”
The picture shows Ayan and Alia in conversation on the sets of their upcoming film. Alia is seen listening intently to Ayan’s direction through a large metal fence.
Ayan also shared Ranbir’s photo from an early look test for the film, revealing the actor’s journey from Rumi to Shiva. He captioned it, “Rumi. First, he was Rumi. Rumi with long hair. This image is from an early look test for the movie. Rumi said, ‘Love is the bridge between you and everything...’, and that feeling is the foundation we started building the protagonist of this movie on... But then, there was new inspiration, newer thoughts... Dragon became Brahmāstra, we gave Ranbir a haircut, and Rumi became...Shiva. #brahmastra #shivadiaries #memories #creativeprocess #evolving”
Ranbir Kapoor is looking rustic and rugged in the picture, with messy long hair and a stubble!
