Brahmastra is an upcoming 2020 Indian Hindi-language superhero film written and directed by Ayan Mukerji, and produced by Karan Johar. It stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Akkineni Nagarjuna in pivotal roles and will serve as the first film in a planned trilogy

Principal photography began in Bulgaria in February 2018 and the film is scheduled for release on 4 December 2020 in standard formats, 3D, and IMAX.

Producer Karan Johar announced the film via Twitter on 11 October 2017 revealing that it would be made into a film trilogy. The preparation for the film started in January 2018. In an interview, Kapoor revealed that Mukerji “has spent six years of his life working really hard to make an original story” and that the trilogy would be made over a period of 10 years and refuted rumours suggesting that it is a romantic superhero film.

Instead Kapoor confirmed that the film is a “romantic-fairytale in a supernatural format.” and that the film is not something which “doesn’t have truth to it, or which is unbelievable”
