The first part, Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva, featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, introduced the ‘Astraverse’ to Indian audiences, with an ensemble cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. The movie received an overwhelming response, emerging as the highest-grossing film of 2022, featuring an extended cameo by Shah Rukh Khan.
Speculations about the portrayal of Dev, Shiva’s father, circulated widely after the film’s release, with names like Hrithik Roshan, Kannada star Yash, and Ranveer Singh surfacing among fans’ discussions. Now, Ranveer Singh is the chosen one for the role of Dev in the sequel.
According to sources cited by News18, “Ranveer has officially signed on to portray Dev. While the scripting for the second part continues, the film is anticipated to commence production in 2025. Meanwhile, Ranveer will also commence shooting for Baiju Bawra this year.” As for when the shooting for Brahmastra 2 will commence remains uncertain.
