2016 is a year which will always be remembered as the year which saw the rise of Alia Bhatt, the actress and not mere eye candy. With her latest release ‘Dear Zindagi’ wowing audiences and critics alike, she is ending this year on a pretty high note as well. Ranbir Kapoor’s fortunes have improved as well, and the two of them are to appear together onscreen in Ayan Mukherji’s upcoming superhero movie, ‘Dragon’. This will be the first film to feature the two youth icons as well.
In a tweet shared by Dharma Productions, the actors are seen working hard for the demanding physical role the superhero film will entail. It is well known that Karan Johar, the main man behind the Dharma banner, is fond of these two stars. Ranbir Kapoor was last seen in Karan’s directorial venture, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, his first after many years. Also,Alia’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ was co-produced by Johar. Now he is set to produce their next film together.

The film will be made by Ayan Mukherji, who made ‘Wake Up Sid’ in 2009 and the 2013 blockbuster ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.Ranbir Kapoor will begin shooting for ‘Dragon’ after the actor wraps up shooting Rajkumar Hirani’s next, a biopic on Sanjay Dutt. Reports state that the boy with superpowers will feature in the film, which will obviously be played by Ranbir Kapoor. The powers are yet to be specified, however. Bollywood has yet to see a successful superhero movie after Tiger Shroff’s ‘A Flying Jatt’ proved to be a box-office dead on arrival. Watch this space for more details coming your way. Soon!
