Brahmastra also features Amitabh Bachchan and is reportedly a futuristic film. While the story of the film has been kept under wraps, the film's director had earlier spoken to PTI and said, "In its core, it has romance as an element but it has got a new flavour to it. It's a huge project and lot of people have faith in it and in me so I need to deliver for my own career, for the producer, the actors and the entire crew."

This is Karan and Ayan's third film together. The filmmaker has made Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani earlier for Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.
