Apart from Brahmastra, he will reportedly make his appearance next in Shamshera, an action drama produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Karan Malhotra. The film also stars Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt.
Past interactions between the duo
During a Brahmastra event in December last year, filmmaker Ayan Mukerji opened up around the time when Ranbir and Alia began dating while they were working on the film. He stated that he instructed them against stepping out together.
Ayan said, “To be honest when we started our film, I thought this is the best casting- Ranbir and Alia. It was just too good. Then Ranbir and Alia became very good friends. On to very very very good friends in life. Became more than friends. So then, I didn’t want the whole world to see them for these 4 years. I didn’t want anyone to see them till my film had not come out. Lots of things haven’t happened in their lives because every time they went out together, I would be sitting at the back saying ‘you all are ruining my film. Please don’t go anywhere.’ It feels good now that we can share them.”
In a 2020 discussion when questioned about his relationship with Alia. Ranbir had said that if the pandemic had not occurred, he would have already tied the knot with her. He said, “It (the wedding) would have already been sealed if the pandemic hadn’t hit our lives.”
