Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra is definitely one of the most awaited films of 2020. Although there have been a few delays, sources tell us that the makers have put in a lot of effort to make it a visual extravaganza. Apart from the film's lead, it features a terrific ensemble that has Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy in primary roles and Shah Rukh Khan, Dimple Kapadia and South superstar Nagarjuna stepping in for special roles. 

But amid all this, there were strong rumours that Ayan Mukerji had approached Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone to step in for two important parts in the whole mythological sci-fi flick. A source close to the development tells us, "Brahmastra is written in a way where many characters who will hardly have a role to essay in the first part, come into play in a major way in the next two parts of the trilogy. Ayan needed two actors from the younger generation - in their mid 30s - to step into play Ranbir aka Shiva's parents. He had then approached Ranveer and Deepika for the same."

Before you get shocked, let us tell you that the film's setting is completely different. "Ranbir loses his parents when he's young, so Ranveer and Deepika would have played their actual ages in the film. They have a cameo in Brahmastra Part One, but their backstory comes into light in the second installment of the mammoth project. It would have been an interesting casting coup but neither Ranveer nor DP have given their nod to the film. In fact, the team is now scouting for another A-list actor and actress to step in for the same roles."

This movie is going on and on for 2 years . RK's market value has gone down , his personal life is in shambles. all this effects any movie .IT will take an year more to release . Can it hold public interest ?

They are just trying to get some attention. This way they have tagged deepika and ranveer names with the movie. There is no way they were going to agree to something like that.

Does this boy not learn from Jagga Jasoos flop?...Love RK as an actor and for that I hope it does not flop but all these young nepo stars live in KJo's world which is out of touch with what the average movie goer wants to see. Never say flop though because Lord of the Rings took three years to make and the trilogies were a massive hit.

they waited 3 years of filming to cast dead parents? seriously what is going on with this movie?

Gosh, will they release the movie ever or just news feed about the movie forever and ever.

You don't need A-list actors for dead parents. Every major character ever has dead parents - Harry Potter, Batman, Spiderman... they are non-existent and irrelevant to the plot.

This film is still in making? When is shooting going to end?

loll young generation needs a franchise with a cast their own age group and a storyline relevant to their time. Nobody wants to see dharma production with irrelevant kapoor heading into his 40s.

lolll this film project will fail miserably. nobody watches desi sci-fi no matter how tech advance and this idea is outdated of losing your parents...desi harry potter lol

I think Katrina was also approached for the role. Recently, She went to Ayan’s home for a meeting.....you never know?

Wait for Karan's PR to say this also. He can only gathered attention by using Ranveer, Deepika and Katrina.

they got srk to make a cameo and now want dp/rs at the last hour. Is it so bad that they have to resort to tricks?

Such a crappy idea

Oo please

Blah blah blah. I will hate DP and RS if they do such mistake ever. RK and KJo should get better jobs than working on such crappy ideas

Aur koi nautanki hai kya @PinkVilla
