Earlier, there were reports in the media that Ranbir Kapoor’s next film will be titled Dragon, but it seems the name of the same film has been changed to Brahmastra.
This year, Kapoor was seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos that turned out to be a disaster at the box office.
A day ago, Johar had announced another film with Akshay Kumar in the lead which is said to be based on the battle of Saragarhi.
