Alia Bhatt, who is basking in the success of Brahmastra, in a recent interview with India Today was asked which actress would she like to see as Amrita in the second installment of Brahmastra. Alia’s reply was Deepika Padukone. Alia told India Today: “Deepika for sure for Amrita. She is gorgeous and stunning. She has that amazing stature.” Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor, who played the role of Shiva in the film, said, ” I think, Dev and Amrita are by far the most interesting characters in this trilogy. And for actors to play this part, it is going to be exciting for any actor. Where the cast is concerned, as in who to cast, I think the way Ayan is looking at the trilogy, the way Ayan is looking at the larger picture, I think it is very exciting. It is only going to get more exciting. We have an inclination in which direction it is going but it is only providing more excitement and more grandeur to the trilogy.”
After Brahmastra‘s release, a section of the Internet was convinced that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will star in the Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev. Deepika also had a blink-and-miss appearance in the film. Several fan theories pertaining to the film have been doing the rounds, especially regarding Amrita and Dev, the principle characters of the film’s second instalment. In a recent Instagram post, the film’s director Ayan Mukerji wrote: “All the amazing fan theories out there (some of which we’re definitely going to use in our future).”
In the first leg of the Astra universe of films, Ranbir Kapoor’s character Shiva is a missing puzzle of the Brahmastra. He is represented by the element fire. Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna are the protectors of a secret society called Brahmansh, which aims to protect the mighty Brahmastra. Alia Bhatt plays Ranbir Kapoor’s love interest Isha in the film, while Mouni Roy represents the dark forces that wish to attain the Brahmastra. In the film, SRK’s character Mohan Bhargav is a scientist, who doubles up as the protector of the Brahmastra. He also possesses the Vanar Astra, which grants him speed and agility. Nagarjuna is the master of the Nandiastra, which gives him the power of a thousand bulls.
Brahmastra released in theatres earlier this month. It opened to largely positive reviews from film critics and it was equally adept at impressing the audience as well.
