Brahmastra, produced by Karan Johar, is definitely staying in news for more than one reason! While the Ranbir Kapoor – Alia Bhatt chemistry is much awaited, the fact that Amitabh Bachchan too is a part of it makes it even more intriguing. Adding to it is also that Nagarjuna will be a part of the film. While we had reported the same earlier, it seems that the South superstar’s son Akhil Akkineni decided to pay a visit to the sets of his father’s film.
Nagarjuna, who himself has acted in a handful of Hindi films like Shiva, Khuda Gawah amongst others, started shooting for Brahmastra about two weeks ago. And now it seems that his son Akhil Akkineni too has bonded big time with the team of the film. Akhil, who is not just the son of Nagarjuna but also a popular actor down South, was recently snapped alongside Karan Johar and Ranbir Kapoor.
Karan Johar, who loves to be on social media, posted the selfie along with Akhil and his Brahmastra leading man Ranbir Kapoor as his Instagram story. Although it seems that Akhil was just paying a friendly visit on the sets of Brahmastra, it wouldn’t be surprising to have him in a small cameo!
On the other hand, when Karan announced about Nagarjuna joining the cast of this superhero drama, he didn’t reveal many details of the role. Although he maintained that the South celebrity’s role is very special, his character sketch is currently being kept under wraps.
Speaking of Brahmastra, it is directed by Ayan Mukerji. While the young director is venturing into this superhero space for the first time, we hear that the film is inspired by Indian mythology. It is expected to be a three part series and is also said to star Mouni Roy. Brahmastra is slated to release on August 15.
