Ranveer to play Ranbir's father in Brahmastra 2
A source told the portal, “Ranveer Singh has been finalised to play the role of Dev. He has signed the dotted line. The scripting for the second part is still in progress and the film is expected to roll in 2025. Currently, Ayan is busy with War 2 and Ranveer will also begin shooting for Baiju Bawra this year. So, when Brahmastra 2 will go on floors is still unclear.”
“If all goes well, Ranveer will kick-start Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra mid-2024. While it was decided that the shoot of Brahmastra 2 will begin in early 2025, it is now being said that Don 3 will go on floors at around the same time. In all likelihood, Ranveer will shoot for Don 3 first and then Brahmastra 2," the source added.
This will be the first time that two Bollywood off-screen couples – Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone – will come together for a film. Deepika plays Ranbir Kapoor's mother Amrita in Brahmastra.
