Director Ayan Mukerji was accompanied by Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor to talk about the lead characters Amrita and Dev during one of the promotions of Brahmastra recently. According to the trio, no one else knows who would portray the two roles in the film’s sequel apart from them. During an interview with India Today, Alia was requested to pick one actor who she thinks would be apt to play Amrita in the sequel.
She said, “Deepika (Padukone) for sure! She is gorgeous and stunning. She has that amazing stature.”
Ranbir's response seemed vague, but he said, “I think Dev and Amrita are by far the most interesting characters in this trilogy. And when it comes to being part of the sequel, it is going to be exciting for any actor. As far as Ayan’s character is concerned, I think it should be exciting irrespective of which actor takes it up in the sequel. We have an idea about which direction the role is going. It will provide more excitement and grandeur to the trilogy.”
Meanwhile, fans have been suggesting interesting names for the sequels, including that of Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh for the character of Dev.
Brahmastra, which hit theatres on September 9, marked the coming together of Alia and Ranbir for the first time. The movie introduces audiences to the concept of Astraverse which is considered to be one of its highlights. Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna are others who play important roles in the movie. Dimple Kapadia, Deepika, and Shah Rukh Khan are seen appearing in cameos in the film.
Despite being made with a budget of Rs 410 crore, Brahmastra has grossed around Rs 330 crore worldwide, as per Bollywood Hungama. Though the movie has not really made back its invested money at the box office, there is still hope that it will eventually do so through other forms of revenue, including its digital rights.
