Alia Bhatt basking in the success of Brahmastrawas asked in a recent interview with India Today which actress she would like to see as Amrita in the second installment of Brahmastra. Alia’s answer was Deepika Padukone. Alia told India Today, “Deepika for sure for Amrita. She is beautiful and stunning. She has the amazing stature.” Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor, who played the role of Shiva in the film, said, “I think Dev and Amrita are by far the most interesting characters in this trilogy. And for actors to play this role, it becomes exciting for any actor. When it in terms of the cast, like who’s going to be in it, I think the way Ayan looks at the trilogy, the way Ayan looks at the bigger picture, I think it’s very exciting. It’s only going to get more exciting. We tend to, whichever direction it goes, but it only adds more excitement and more grandeur to the trilogy.”
After Brahmastras release, a section of the internet was convinced that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will star in the Brahmastra: Second Part – Dev. Deepika also had a blink-and-miss appearance in the film. Several fan theories regarding the film have been doing the rounds, especially regarding Amrita and Dev, the protagonists of the film’s second installment. In a recent Instagram post, the film’s director Ayan Mukerji wrote: “All the amazing fan theories out there (some of which will definitely be used in our future).”
In the first installment of the Astra film universe, Ranbir Kapoor’s character Shiva is a missing piece of the puzzle. Brahmastra. He is represented by the element of fire. Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna are protectors of a secret society called Brahmansh, which aims to protect the powerful Brahmastra. Alia Bhatt plays Ranbir Kapoor’s love interest Isha in the film, while Mouni Roy represents the dark forces that want to achieve Brahmastra. In the film, SRK’s character Mohan Bhargav is a scientist who acts as the protector of Brahmastra. He also possesses the Vanar Astra, which gives him speed and agility. Nagarjuna is the lord of Nandiastra, which gives him the strength of a thousand bulls.
Brahmastra was released in theaters earlier this month. It opened to largely positive reviews from film critics and was equally adept at wowing audiences.
