Director Ayan Mukerji is impressed with Alia Bhatt as he recently took to Instagram to post a photo of hers from the sets of his upcoming film ‘Brahmastra’.

As Alia’s look from another film ‘Kalank’ released along with the teaser of the film, Ayan saw himself lauding the actress.

In a post that has Ayan in serious talks with Alia, he wrote: “Director & Actress. Alia. Sunshine and Starlight ! Fire, but also Wind and always Water... I met Alia when she was 18 and almost instantly she bombed her way into my life and my movies and my soul. Today, she’s not so little anymore and bombing us with too much beauty in Kalank’s beautiful trailer which dropped earlier... More on my journey (flying to the stars) with Alia over the next few... 💥💥💥 #brahmastra #ishadiaries #littleone”

Ayan has become a regular on the photo-sharing app ever since he joined the growing network.

He shared a photo of Ranbir Kapoor, another actor in his film ‘Brahmastra’ and wrote, “Rumi. First, he was Rumi. Rumi with long hair. This image is from an early look test for the movie. Rumi said, ‘Love is the bridge between you and everything...’, and that feeling is the foundation we started building the protagonist of this movie on... But then, there was new inspiration, newer thoughts... Dragon became Brahmāstra, we gave Ranbir a haircut, and Rumi became... Shiva. #brahmastra #shivadiaries #memories #creativeprocess #evolving.”
