Touted as one of the biggest Indian superhero films in recent years, dircetor Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra has finally got its first logo art. The artwork was released by Mukerji on his own Instagram account, which he opened yesterday. The director shared the image of the two heroes in the film, played by Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, locked in an embrace while meteors streamed around them.
The logo features the two protagonists in a tight embrace. Mukerji tagged it with the quote ‘Part 1: Love #brahmastra’ perhaps implying that the focal part of the first part of the franchise will involve Kapoor and Bhatt’s characters, and their love as the key element.
However, the logo also portrays a glimpse of the superhero element in the film. The embrace by Kapoor’s character also seems to be protecting his love from the fiery meteors that surround them.
Mukerji had earlier accompanied Kapoor and Bhatt, alongwith Amitabh Bachchan as they launched the logo at the Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj (Allahabad). The film, currently in production, is the first of a three-part franchise by Dharma Productions. Kapoor is expected to play Shiva, the superhero, while Bhatt essays the character of Isha.
The names were revealed by Mukerji in an earlier post featuring the duo standing on the banks of a ghat in Prayagraj.
The film also features Bachchan and Telugu star, Nagarjuna, in key roles.
Brahmastra, the first film, was initially scheduled to release on the Independence Day weekend of 2019, but has been postponed to Christmas this year.
