Brahmastra: Ranveer Singh & Deepika Padukone got asked to play Ranbir Kapoor's parents

Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra has already become one of the most anticipated films. The film that stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles bases on the Shiva Trilogy. For other roles in the film, Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna have stepped in. However, according to a source of Pinkvilla, Ayan had approached Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone for a very special role in the film. To play Ranbir's parents. Yes, you read it right. But before you think otherwise, Ranveer and Deepika would have played Ranbir's parents from the past. Since the movie story starts when his parents are already dead, Ayan would have shown Ranveer and Deepika as a young couple only.
 
"Brahmastra movie has written in a way where many characters who will hardly have a role to essay in the first part, come into play in a major way in the next two parts of the trilogy. Ayan needed two actors from the younger generation - in their mid-30s - to step in to play Ranbir aka Shiva's parents. He had then approached Ranveer and Deepika for the same, " tells the source.
 
About turning down the offer by the couple, the source added, "Ranbir loses his parents when he's young, so Ranveer and Deepika would have played their actual ages in the film. They have a cameo in Brahmastra Part One, but their backstory comes into light in the second installment of the mammoth project. It would have been an interesting casting coup but neither Ranveer nor DP have given their nod to the film. In fact, the team is now scouting for another A-list actor and actress to step in for the same roles."
