'Brahmastra’ movie poster: Ranbir Kapoor’s first look as Shiva is fierce and daunting

 Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s highly anticipated ‘Brahmastra’ is all set to hit the theaters on September 9, 2022. Ahead of the release, the makers have recently shared the movie poster and also revealed Ranbir’s look in the film. 

Alia Bhatt recently shared the movie poster on her Instagram handle and shared a note which read, “His power lights from within. Here comes our Shiva! 💥🔥 Brahmāstra Part One: Shiva - Releases in Cinemas on 09.09.2022”. The video gives us a glimpse of Shiva aka Ranbir’s world, where he is heard saying to Alia’s character “Kuch chal rha hai duniya mein Isha...aisa kuch jo normal logo ke samjh ke bahar hai"...He continues "kuch purani shaktiyan hai, kuch astra hai".. After which Alia's character asks "Yeh sab tumhe kyun dikh rha hai..Tum ho kaun Shiva" Soon Ranbir's character emerges holding Lord Shiva's 'Trishula'.

In the film, Ranbir Kapoor essays the role of Shiva, and is said to be a man with supernatural powers. During the film’s movie poster preview, director Ayan Mukerji had shared, “I know the term superhero gets used with the film a lot because it is sort of in that genre. But in my mind, it is not a superhero film. It is a fantasy adventure epic. It is a modern mythology piece. Shiva is closer to a modern representation of a deva than a western superhero. He is a normal guy who is born with certain energy within him.”

Apart from Ranbir and Alia, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, and Nagarjuna in pivotal roles. Mouni Roy will be reportedly seen essaying a negative lead in this three-part franchise film.
