The upcoming Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor-starrer, Brahamastra has been the talk of the town ever since it went on floors. The film marks the first time the much-loved couple will be sharing screen space. The film’s shooting has been going on for quite some time now, and despite this, there has been little news pertaining to the film. It was on the sets of Brahamastra that Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor developed their relationship. The two were spotted at the airport the other day as they headed to Manali to kick off the film schedule there.

As the two were spotted at the airport, they obliged the paparazzi with pictures and Ranbir Kapoor was spotted wearing a sling on his right arm. This indicated that he had been injured, perhaps from playing football the night earlier. And now, as per reports, the actor is said to be continuing shooting despite his shoulder injury. On the night of his injury, Ranbir Kapoor stayed with Alia Bhatt and his cousin Armaan Jain to celebrate the latter’s birthday.
The 15-day shoot schedule has commenced and was supposed to kick off with some action scenes, however, Ayan Mukerji has pushed those to the end of the schedule to allow some healing time for Ranbir Kapoor. As per reports, Ranbir Kapoor will now commence shooting from Tuesday onwards.
A source was quoted as saying to a leading Indian daily that, “Ranbir rested it out yesterday while Ayan shot some key sequences with the rest of the cast. He is expected to start filming from Tuesday. However, both Ayan and he have decided to push the action scenes for the latter half of the schedule.” The physiotherapist of the Football Club in which Ranbir plays has advised some exercises and cold packs to help the star heal faster.
