In the first leg of the Astra universe of films, Ranbir Kapoor’s character Shiva was a missing puzzle of the mighty Brahmastra. He was represented by the element fire. Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna featured as the protectors of a secret society called ‘Brahmansh’, which protected the mighty Brahmastra. Alia Bhatt played Ranbir Kapoor’s love interest Isha in the film, while Mouni Roy represented the dark forces that wished to attain the Brahmastra.
In the film, SRK’s character Mohan Bhargav was a scientist, who doubled up as the protector of the Brahmastra. He also possessed the Vanar Astra, which granted him speed and agility. Nagarjuna was the master of the Nandiastra, which gave him the power of a thousand bulls.
