Alia Bhatt on Friday dazzled in a pink sharara during the promotion of her upcoming film ‘Brahmastra’ in Hyderabad. The mother-to-be had a special message for her baby in the dress. The kameez of Bhatt’s sharara had “Baby-On-Board” on its back as she was seen swirling in the outfit.
Brahmastra is three-part film directed by Ayan Mukerji and will see Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt first time on-screen. The film is set to release on 9 September.
Also starring featuring Alia Bhatt, the first part will see Ranbir play Shiva, a man with special powers. It also features south star Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy.
The long-in-the-works film is slated to be released later this year.
Multiple delays, a pandemic and two lockdowns later, director Ayan Mukerji earlier had said he is happy a fulfilling but difficult journey has led to the fruition of his dream project, “Brahmastra: Part One Shiva” a mega budget fantasy adventure that is finally set to release in September.
Mukerji, best known for his youthful, slice-of-life dramas such as Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani , said the film gave him a chance to mix ancient Indian culture and spirituality with the contemporary world.
The film is kind of a meeting place of modern India with a feeling of ancient Indian powers about it, which, in many ways, is what our country is. Like, we live in the modern world but Indians are a bit spiritual, close to faith, close to a feeling that something divine connects us or hangs around us, Mukerji said ahead of the film’s trailer launch on June 15.
Fantasy adventure is one of the most underutilised and high-risk genres in Bollywood, given the fact that such films demand huge budgets but Mukerji said his love for the genre and mythology inspired him to take on the challenge.
