The teaser shared by Alia, introduces her as Isha, the female lead in the astraverse fantasy film. We see Alia in Ranbir’s arm in one frame and in another we see her in a beautiful red saree. The actress is seen in a never before action avatar where she is running amidst grey smoke.

Brahmastra teaser begins with a quick glance at Alia and Ranbir as Isha and Shiva respectively, and then goes on to show her in several shades, from soft romantic, bubbly and chirpy to full-on action mode.
Brahmastra will release on 9th September 2022 in five languages including – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
Apart from Ranbir and Alia, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
