Alia, Ranbir's 'Brahmastra': Shah Rukh Khan's look as 'Vanarastra' leaked
Ever since Bollywood film Brahmastra's trailer was dropped earlier this year, reports have been making the rounds about Shah Rukh Khan's cameo appearance in the film. And now, a photo of Khan is trending on social media. It is being reported that the leaked photo is from Brahmastra, where King Khan will be seen playing Vanarastra, inspired by Lord Hanuman.
Why does this story matter?
Brahmastra is touted to be one of the biggest Bollywood projects and features the first Indian movie universe called the Astraverse. It was reported that Khan's character in the film will have special superpowers and will be present in an elaborate action scene. Apart from the photo, a short clip is also making the rounds on social media spilling the beans about Khan's character.
What did the photo and video show?
In the photo, Khan can be seen in a blood-soaked avatar. The video shows him transforming into a Hanuman-like figure. It was revealed that Khan's role is an important one. "SRK is supposedly playing a scientist in Brahmastra and his role is quite important to the film's story graph. His role is at least around 15-20 minutes," Indian Express quoted a source as saying.
