Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra: Part 1’ starring handsome hunk Ranbir Kapoor and his lovely wife Alia Bhatt was well received by fans. The songs of the movie, ‘Kesariya’ and ‘Rasiya’, got very good responses from the fans.

With over Rs 400 crore worldwide collections, Brahmastra was one of the highest grossers of last year. Since then, fans are eagerly waiting for the second part that will show the much-anticipated character Dev.

There were several speculations of KGF fame Yash joining Brahmastra as Dev. On the other hand, many reports suggested that Ranbir Kapoor would be seen as Dev and Shiva in a double role.

As per a report in News 18, the film’s director Ayan Mukerji has finalized Ranveer Singh to play the role of Dev, the father of Ranbir Kapoor (Shiva) in the film.

“Ranveer Singh has been finalized to play the role of Dev. He has signed the dotted line. The scripting for the second part is still in progress and the film is expected to roll in 2025,” Ayan was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Ayan Mukerji is busy with War 2 starring Hrithik Roshan and RRR fame actor Jr. NTR. On the other hand, Ranveer Singh is also busy in the shooting of his upcoming movie Baiju Bawra. So, when Brahmastra: Part 2 will go on the floors is still unclear. 

Furthermore, Deepika Padukone who was seen as ‘Amrita’ in the first part will reprise her role and will be seen as Ranbir Kapoor’s mother. 

Earlier, Ranbir Kapoor had dropped major hints that Brahmastra: Part 2 will be 10 times bigger than the first part.
