NEW DELHI: Actor Ranbir Kapoor paid a small emotional tribute to his late father Rishi Kapoor at the official poster launch event of his upcoming movie ‘Brahmastra’ in the national capital on Wednesday.
‘Brahmastra’ director Ayan Mukherjee with lead actors Ranbir and Alia Bhatt was also present at the event. After unveiling the official poster of the much-anticipated movie, Ranbir got emotional and recalled his conversation with his father about the film that was under production for more than eight years. “I miss my father terribly today. I remember during the making of the film, he kept fighting with Ayan and me and kept questioning us. ‘What are you guys doing? Who takes so long to make a film? Who spends so much money? Ranbir, you are not making a penny on this film. Nobody watches a VFX film in the country?’ But I believe he is here somewhere and I hope he is proud. I hope he is smiling,” Ranbir said.
At the event after the trailer launch, Ranbir and Alia along with the film’s director Ayan Mukherji answered several fan questions. One inevitable question which was asked by a fan to Ranbir during the Q&A session was “When will you marry Alia, or someone else?” Ranbir wittily replied and said, “Haven’t we seen a lot of people getting married in the last one year? I think we should be happy with that.” However, turning towards Alia, he cheekily added, Humari kab hogi?” A visibly blushing Alia replied by saying, “Why are you asking me?” Ranbir quickly responded that he was asking Ayan.The filmmaker replied by smartly dodging the situation and said, “Aaj ke liye ek hi date kaafi hai, Brahmastra ki release date.” He added that they’d have to wait for the wedding date.
