Director Ayan Mukherji has shared the first picture of actor Alia Bhatt from the sets of Brahmastra. He also praised her beauty in the Kalank teaser which was revealed on Tuesday.

The picture shows Ayan and Alia in conversation on the sets of their upcoming film. Alia is seen listening intently to Ayan’s direction through a large metal fence. Ayan promised that he will share more pictures of Alia from the film’s sets over the next few days.

“Director & Actress. Alia. Sunshine and Starlight ! Fire, but also Wind and always Water... I met Alia when she was 18 and almost instantly she bombed her way into my life and my movies and my soul. Today, she’s not so little anymore and bombing us with too much beauty in Kalank’s beautiful trailer which dropped earlier... More on my journey (flying to the stars) with Alia over the next few...,” Ayan captioned the picture. Alia stars opposite Ranbir Kapoor in the fantasy project which will be released as a trilogy.

Ayan, who helmed the upcoming fantasy drama, has been sharing anecdotes about the making of the film. Earlier last week, Ayan in an Instagram post revealed that Ranbir was his first call after he came up with the idea of the science-fiction. He also shared Ranbir’s photo from an early look test for the film, revealing the actor’s journey from Rumi to Shiva.

“Rumi. 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 Brahmāstra, we gave Ranbir a haircut, and Rumi became... Shiva. #brahmastra #shivadiaries #memories #creativeprocess #evolving” Ayan wrote alongside the picture.

In the photo shared by the filmmaker, Ranbir can be seen in a rustic and rugged avatar. With messy long hair and a stubble, the Sanju actor is looking like an artist. The filmmaker has been using his Instagram account to share insights into the making of Brahmastra.

The filmmaker has been using his Instagram account to share insights into the making of Brahmastra. The 35-year-old filmmaker had recently unveiled several rejected logos of the film. Brahmastra as been extensively shot in Bulgaria, New York, and Mumbai, among other places.

Apart from Ranbir and Alia, the film also stars Mouni Roy and Tollywood actor Nagarjuna. It is slated to release around Christmas this year.
