Brahmastra is
off-screen couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s first movie together.

It is a big-budget superhero
film, a rare sighting in Bollywood. Ranbir Kapoor plays a DJ named Shiva who later discovers his superpower: fire.

Shiva’s aim is to beat his
enemies in the race to find the Brahmastra, the most powerful weapon in the universe.

Brahmastra is written as a
trilogy and is set in two timelines: the present day and the
pre-Mahabharatha era. 

The film boasts a star cast
including Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, Nagarjuna Akkineni, and Mouni Roy.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan
has a cameo role in the film.
He plays a scientist creating powerful sources of energy.

Reportedly, it took
writer-director Ayan Mukerji six years to write Brahmastra, which also took five years to shoot.
