The most anticipated movie, ‘Brahmastra’ was supposed to wrap up this month. The shooting of the film starring Alia Bhatt has been stopped after Ranbir Kapoor tests Covid-19 positive. The film faced numerous postpones due to various factors and the Coronavirus pandemics also added to the delay.
A source revealed, “Since this was the last schedule, the marketing team of Brahmastra had decided to shoot a brief promo with Ranbir Kapoor. The idea was to announce the release date of this much-awaited big-budget movie with the promo. They had planned to shoot the video with Ranbir just a few days before the wrap-up. Now that Ranbir has tested positive for the virus, even their plan is on hold,”
The source further revealed, “Only after Ranbir Kapoor has completely recovered will he resume the shoot and film the promo. The producers are willing to wait as they fully understand that in the times we live, anyone can catch the virus. Also, they have no other choice. Everyone is hoping that this is the last and final impediment and the journey till the theatrical release will be a smooth one.”
Earlier, actress Alia Bhatt took to her Instagram stories and informed about testing negative of the coronavirus. She also thanked her fans and well-wishers for their love and prayers.
