Ayan Mukerji is all set to join hands with his best friend yet again with Brahmastra. The filmmaker enters into the new genre of superheroes with this Bollywood venture which has been in the making for quite some time now. Ayan, who made his debut on Instagram recently, has been giving us glimpses of his journey and how the film was initially penned to be Dragon and then later turned into Brahmastra. In his latest post, he has spoken about the look transformation of Ranbir Kapoor from Rumi to Shiva.
Some readers would be aware that Ayan Mukerji had initially announced the superhero drama with Ranbir Kapoor titled as Dragon. But the film underwent changes over the years and the filmmaker has been giving us snippets of how the process took place from Dragon to Brahmastra. Speaking of his recent post, the director revealed that the character played by Ranbir Kapoor- that of the protagonist – too underwent extensive change. His look initially featured him sporting longer hair and his character was then named Rumi. Ayan gave us a peek-boo of Ranbir as Rumi in this recent Instagram post.
He also said, “First, he was Rumi. Rumi with long hair. This image is from an early look test for the movie. Rumi said, ‘Love is the bridge between you and everything...’, and that feeling is the foundation we started building the protagonist of this movie on... But then, there was new inspiration, newer thoughts... Dragon became Brahmastra, we gave Ranbir a haircut, and Rumi became... Shiva."
