It’s been more than a decade since Tollywood star Nagarjuna has acted in a Bollywood film. After all these years, his fans are in for a special treat with the star inking a deal to star in the Bollywood flick Brahmastra. The film will be produced by Karan Johar and has Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the star cast.

In an interview to the Indian Express, Nag recalled working with Big B in Khuda Gawah and said, “Except Amitji with whom I’ve worked in Khuda Gawah, they are all new to me. I’m working for the first time with Karan Johar, director Ayan Mukherjee, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor.”

Ayan Mukherjee will be directing the film while it will be bankrolled jointly by Hiroo Johar, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta under their home banner Dharma Productions. Pritam has been roped in to compose the tunes for this flick, which is scheduled for release on Independence Day next year.

On taking up a Hindi movie after a long gap, Nag said, “My career in Andhra keeps me busy. I’ve not shown any inclination to do a Hindi film, though I’m open to doing films in any language if the set-up is good. Brahmastra was impressive from the moment it came to me. I immediately said ‘yes’ and now here I am on my way to shoot for it. I am looking forward to it.”

However, the actor refused to divulge any further details about the role he plays in Brahmastra. “I am not supposed to say much. To be honest, I’m not very sure of the extent of my role. But it’s a pivotal one. And they probably thought of me because the role suits my personality,” Nag said.

Nagarjuna has also inked the deal to star in a multi starrer which also stars Nani in the lead. The film’s title has been revealed as Devadas and the first look poster was released recently.

The shooting of this film is currently underway with plans on to have it released later this year. The actor's last film Officer was a box office dud.
