The Hindi-language fantasy adventure movie Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is one of the most anticipated projects owing to the fact that it’s part of India’s first intended trilogy and so much time has been spent in making the film.
While the fans have been excited ever since Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s first look and the song ‘Kesariya’ was released around their wedding, they have been curious about Amitabh Bachchan’s character in the film.
The makers had revealed the teaser of Brahmastra Part One: Shiva (2022) last week which had Kapoor and Bhatt’s names first followed by that of the supporting cast, including Bachchan, but that didn’t go down well with the fans. Soon after, a new teaser was shared introducing the Shahenshah of Hindi cinema in character
The veteran plays Guru, a wise leader and the one who holds the Prabhastra, the sword of light.
Here’s what Bachchan wrote when he shared the poster on Twitter.
T 4309 - गुरू है गंगा ज्ञान की । काटे भाव का पाश— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) June 9, 2022
गुरू उठा ले अस्त्र जब । करे पाप का नाश
Ek aisi Roshni jismein hai… har andhere ko haraane ki Shakti.

Ayan Mukherji also shared the motion poster on Instagram and expressed his feelings about Bachchan playing Guru in the film. Ayan wrote, “Guru (and his Prabhastra - the sword of light). Since my first meeting with Mr Bachchan in 2016 to discuss Brahmastra, he has always said that he loved the concept of this venture - ancient Indian astras which are protected in India today!
“This blend of ancient Indian spirituality and modern India had really appealed to him, and to my great fortune, he agreed to be a part of Brahmastra and changed the destiny of our movie by bringing his magnificent energy to our Guru, filling him with grace, wit and wisdom. So much excitement and respect in my heart today, as we launch our Guru poster and celebrate this collaboration with the greatest of Indian cinema. More Guru in our trailer — on 15 June.”
Brahmastra Part One: Shiva is set to be released on 9 September. It also stars Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy.
