After enjoying some private time in Bali right before ringing in the New Year, Alia Bhatt is back to work on her upcoming project Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Ayan Mukerji. Filmmaker Karan Johar took to Twitter to post a picture of Alia with co-star Ranbir and director Ayan. The team is gearing up for the shoot in Israel. In some new pictures, Alia and Ranbir can be spotted posing with fans there.

The first installment of Brahmastra, a fantasy adventure trilogy, will be shot in Israel and Jordan as per reports. Brahmastra is being bankrolled by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and it also stars Amitabh Bachchan alongside Alia and Ranbir. While this is the first time Alia and Ranbir are sharing screen in a film, this is also the first time they are going to be working with Big B. Sharing the picture, Karan wrote, “The new year begins with the prep of #BRAHMASTRA….the countdown of the epic journey of our film begins! Filming commences in February 2018! Ayan Mukerji helms this magical trilogy! @SrBachchan #ranbir @aliaa08 and an exciting ensemble!”

Even Alia shared another picture on Instagram with Ranbir and Ayan with the caption, “Prep Vibes.”

Adventure fantasy is a relatively unexplored genre in Bollywood. And complete with Ayan’s wonderful direction and the excellent acting repertoire of its cast, Brahmastra could be the flagbearer of the genre for the country. “It’s a modern-day film set in India as it exists today. But the reason it’s called Brahmastra is because the energies, wisdom, powers in the film come from ancient India. That’s all I would say. There are some costumes, may be not the way you’d expect them to be,” director Ayan Mujkerji had earlier said while talking about his project at a recent event.

As was announced by Karan Johar on the occasion of Amitabh’s birthday, Brahmastra hits the theaters on August 15, 2019. Meanwhile, Gold actor Mouni Roy was also reported to be a part of the project earlier.
