Ranbir Kapoor gets emotional at the launch of the motion poster of Brahmastra, recalled Rishi Kapoor fighting with him over the film

Ranbir Kapoor is all set to release his most anticipated film ‘Brahmastra’. At the launch event of the film, the actor says, “I miss my father terribly today”.

Alia Bhatt and director Ayan Mukerji were in Delhi earlier this week for a fun fan gathering to release the film’s first motion poster.

Ranbir was spotted getting emotional during the event as he recalled his good memories with Papa Rishi Kapoor, who passed away last year. Ranbir also said that his father was on looked after him when he originally signed the film. “I remember during the making of this film, during these last how many ever years, he kept fighting with Ayan and me, and kept, questioning us ki ‘what you doing, who takes so long to make a film, who spends so much of money? Ranbir you’re not making one penny on this film, VFX film kaun dekhega India mein? India mein koi VFX film nahi dekhta.’

He then continued, “But I believe he’s here somewhere. I hope he’s proud, I hope he’s smiling. And just to pay a small tribute to him, if you guys know it, please join me.” Ranbir then goes on to echo Rishi Kapoor’s iconic dialogue ‘Kya tumne kabhi kisise pyaar kiya?” as the crowd responds to him with a loud ‘Kiya’! As he concludes the line, he looks up and sends a kiss.

Ranbir Kapoor will play Shiva in ‘Brahmastra,’ and is said to be a man with superhuman powers. During the film’s motion poster preview, director Ayan Mukerji had shared, “I know the term superhero gets used with the film a lot because it is sort of in that genre. But in my mind, it is not a superhero film. It is a fantasy adventure epic. It is a modern mythology piece. Shiva is closer to a modern representation of a deva than a western superhero. He is a normal guy who is born with certain energy within him.”

Besides Ranbir and Alia, Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, and Nagarjuna play key roles in the film. In this three-part franchise film, Mouni Roy will supposedly play a negative lead.
