Earlier, Nagarjuna had spoken about working on the film with IANS, “Yes, I am doing Brahmastra. It is my first Hindi film in a very long time. I can’t remember when was the last time I did a Hindi film. I think it was Mahesh Bhatt’s Zakhm.”
When the star was told that his last Hindi film was J.P. Dutta’s LOC Kargil in 2003, Nagarjuna said, “Oh yes, LOC. But that was a brief role, though a lot of fun to do. Zakhm was my last full-fledged role in a Hindi film. I still remember Alia Bhatt as a child on Bhatt saab’s set. Now I am working with her in Brahmastra. How time flies.”
The actor, who had shared the screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in Khuda Gawah, is excited to work with the new lot of actors.
“Except Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) with whom I’ve worked in Khuda Gawah, they are all new to me. I’m working for the first time with Karan Johar, (director) Ayan Mukherjee, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor.”
