Ranveer Singh To Play Ranbir Kapoor’s Father Dev In Brahmastra 2: Report

New Delhi: Ever since the release of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’, the buzz around the second part has been quite high. There were speculations about Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone taking over as Ranbir’s parents Dev and Amrita in the second part. Hrithik Roshan and KGF star Yash’s name had also cropped up. As per the latest report, Ranveer Singh has been finalised to play Dev in Ayan Mukerji’s directorial. 

According to a News18 report, Ranveer has now said yes to play Dev, who was introduced as the antagonist at the end of Brahmastra. 

“Ranveer Singh has been finalised 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. Currently, Ayan is busy with War 2 and Ranveer will also begin shooting for Baiju Bawra this year. So, when Brahmastra 2 will go on floors is still unclear,” News18 quoted its source as saying. 

“If all goes well, Ranveer will kick-start Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Baiju Bawra mid-2024. While it was decided that the shoot of Brahmastra 2 will begin in early 2025, it is now being said that Don 3 will go on floors at around the same time.
