Brahmastra: Ranbir is Shiva, Alia is Isha as they unveil the film’s logo and name at Kumbh Mela on the occasion of Mahashivratri


We always knew that the upcoming sci-fi film Brahmastra directed by Ayan Mukerji and starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy is going to be extra special and spectacular. Today, the makers proved our speculations right. They lighted up the night sky of Prayagraj today on the occasion of Mahashivratri as the devotees took the final dip at Kumbh Mela.

Alia, Ranbir and Ayan were at Prayagraj today to bring something extra special as hinted by Alia on her Instagram post and it was indeed a sight to behold. The makers used around 150 drones to light up the sky by making different formations. They made the Indian flag through their formation. The Brahmastra logo, as well as the name, lit up the sky and it was a sight to behold. Check out the pictures from the launch today.[0]=68.ARCc_V7ozH3te5SYrCVg3O62JbaUER_QJwzVMV5gIwDy2qnnL8bhWeie5ALUkkEj0sO2Q6fN6jgSP128TKcec-aa-cX1Rd0SE1fRK5fYwhR-lt03qfbi0Jxc-_OB9HTUUy66X-8QqHZuzuyog4cn_RY15IdcmUHYB4TmTiyZMl3ynOO81tkh5KL9l7hAcLhreu_JouhlU7gIWGZhfsG1zBuOAQrNv3osLBaewi57j1dFm0F7SsZVD8ykmbkGHSM1YuDx2yZ3Qfk39sgK95B-luqjClMk2If8Uiu2H1Sm7CoF-wlwmtEhozc2QuvNnmEBFL9z_Phq6xhYHFV6BcUOFIIfW-C5URcz&__tn__=-R
