At a time when South Indian films have been ruling the roost, director Ayan Mukerji and team are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that Ranbir Kapoor and Ali Bhatt-starrer Brahmastra – Part 1: Shiva is one of the biggest Bollywood films to hit theatres since the pandemic.
Last week, the makers announced a special collaboration with Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi. While the star might not be acting in the film, he is expected to dub for Amitabh Bachchan’s portions as Guru for at least the Telugu version of the fantasy adventure, which is set to hit theatres on September 9.
Now, another big news from the film camp is that Deepika Padukone has been roped in for a cameo in the movie. A source told Bollywoodlife that the actress was approached by the movie’s producer Karan Johar and Ayan, with whom she had worked with in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, for the special appearance and readily agreed.
The report also says that the Pathaan actress will be sharing screen space with Ranbir in the movie and her character will serve as a link to the sequel of Brahmastra. Deepika’s cameo is expected to feature at the end of the film or as its credits sequence. Deepika and Ranbir had last acted together in Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha back in 2015 and the news of their collaboration has already got fans excited.
Deepika’s is not the only big cameo in the film as Shah Rukh Khan too has shot a few portions in the movie. Rumours suggest that he plays the antagonist in the movie and will be seen in the role of a scientist. However, there has been no official confirmation regarding this.
Brahmastra is expected to have one of the biggest releases for a Bollywood film in South as well, with Baahubali director SS Rajamouli presenting the movie in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
