Brahmastra director Ayan Mukerji calls his on-screen alliance with Ranbir Kapoor a ‘true marriage

Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is one of the most anticipated upcoming Indian movies, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. The movie 's director Ayan Mukerji has now talked about his bond with Kapoor, calling it a true marriage. 

Talking at the movie's teaser launch in Vishakapatnam, the director said, "This was a true marriage. I am committed for a lifetime of making movies with Ranbir. We got along very well professionally and personally."

The director added that both him and Kapoor have similar sensibilities and creative preferences, which they discovered at the sets of their first film together, Wake Up Sid. Mukerji further added that this is the reason they are friends in real life as well. 

Talking further about what makes this duo work, the director said that it is a very natural progression and that because he is writing about protagonists who are in the same age group as himself and Kapoor, there is no better actor to essay them. Mukerji also said that he might ask another actor to work on his movie if it is about an older or younger character.

Mukerji made his directorial debut with Wake Up Sid, which became one of Kapoor’s earliest hits as an actor. They then joined hands in 2013 for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, which was a massive success. 

The two are coming together once again in Brahmastra. Apart from Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead, the movie also features Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna Akkineni in pivotal roles. The makers released a short teaser yesterday, which announced that the first trailer will be dropped on June 15. 

The mythological fantasy adventure is slated to hit theatres on September 9, 2022.
