Ayan had also visited Ajay Devgn’s residence on Monday to pay his last respects for his late father Veeru Devgan.

Ayan had earlier shared a video from the recce of the film in Varanasi. He was seen visiting various locations in the city with his crew, chilling in the hotel room and finalising shots in the video. He had also shared a few pictures of him reading on the ghats of river Ganga.

The logo for the film was launched on Mahashivratri during Kumbh Mela at Prayagraj. This was the first time when the makers of a film involved drones and announced the logo on such a huge scale. The names of Ranbir and Alia’s characters - Shiva and Isha were also revealed on the occasion.

Alia had shared the logo video of the film with the caption “Saare astron ka devta - #Brahmastra.” It showed Ranbir asking Amitabh Bachchan about a weapon that is in pieces but will form a circle when joined together. Amitabh calls it the ‘god of all weapons’, the Brahmastra, which holds the power of the universe. When Ranbir asks why is Brahmastra only visible to him, Amitabh says “because you are connected to the final battle of the Brahmastra.”

The film is the first instalment in a fantasy trilogy and also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Tollywood actor Nagarjuna. It was scheduled to release this Christmas but has been postponed to next year.
