In the upcoming film Brahmastra, actor Ranbir Kapoor will play a DJ who discovers that he has superpowers - he can unleash fire from his hands, a new report suggested Saturday. Starring Ranbir, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni.and Mouni Roy, Brahmastra is directed by Ayan Mukerji and is the first film in Ayan’s fantasy trilogy.

A Mid Day report quoted a source as saying, “Ranbir plays a DJ who walks out of his house against his father’s wishes. The story then traces his journey as he tries to fulfil his dreams and discovers his superpowers in the process. It is known that every character in the film possesses superpowers, with Kapoor’s character believed to have the power to unleash fire from his palms.” The tabloid also revealed that Ranbir has undergone training in martial arts such as Kalaripayattu and Varma Kalai, as Brahmastra has some “high octane action sequences”. The ability to control fire is synonymous with the Fantastic Four character Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch. The character has been played on screen by Chris Evans and Michael B Jordan.

Talking about working with boyfriend Ranbir, Alia had recently said, “The idea for Brahmastra was conceived long back when Ayan had just done Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. I wanted to work with him and I have always wanted to work with Ranbir as well. I pleaded to Ayan that please cast me with him.”

From what has been revealed so far, Ranbir plays a character named Shiva and Alia plays Isha in the film, which has been shot in London, New York, Bulgaria, Israel and India, among other places.

The logo of the film was unveiled in an innovative way - 150 drones flew and formed the logo in the sky during the Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj. Brahmastra is set to hit theatres around Christmas. .
