On the work front, Ranbir has lately been busy shooting for Ayan Mukerji's action fantasy film Brahmastra alongside his girlfriend Alia Bhatt. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni, and Mouni Roy.

However, speculations have risen that the shoot will be stalled temporarily with the lead actor contracting COVID-19.
