Ranbir Kapoor’s ambitious film Brahmastra, which was earlier scheduled to enter theatres in 2019, will now release towards the end of 2020. This clearly means that the actor will have no releases in the next one and a half year because the hold-up in the production of Brahmastra has further delayed the schedule of Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming projects as well.

Brahmastra recently hit the headlines when director Ayan Mukerji took to social media to announce that he needed more time to wrap up the big-ticket film. Since Ranbir Kapoor had to accommodate more dates for the project, his next project Shamshera with Yash Raj Films is bearing the brunt of the inordinate delay.

According to reports, Dharma Productions’ head-honcho Karan Johar, who is producing Brahmastra, met the producer of Shamshera, Aditya Chopra. Johar requested Chopra to adjust the dates which the latter readily agreed to do. But since Brahmastra is still going to take a lot of time in production and then post-production, Ranbir Kapoor’s fans won’t be able to see their favourite star in theatres for close to one and a half year.

“Ranbir’s dates for Shamshera were supposed to start after Brahmastra wrapped. But it seems Ayan requires more of Ranbir’s dates. Karan requested Adi for more time and he complied. Shamshera will now be completed in 2021,” a source in the know reveals.

Apart from Ranbir Kapoor, Brahmastra also stars Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy in lead roles. As for Shamshera, the movie will see Kapoor joining forces with Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor. Interestingly, Ranbir Kapoor’s last film Sanju (2018) was a biopic based on the eventful life of superstar Sanjay Dutt.
