Ayan Mukerji’s next Dragon is a superhero flick featuring Ranbir Kapoor in the titular role. Alia Bhatt plays the female lead in the movie.
So far, not many details of the film have been divulged, but we do know that the Ranbir has begun prepping up for his role. Now, reports have surfaced that Amitabh Bachchan has joined the cast of the Ayan’s dream project.
Mumbai Mirror reports that Big B has been roped in to play an important role in Dragon. And he will begin shooting in the middle of this year. Before that Amitabh is also set to shoot for his film with Aamir Khan, tentatively titled Thugs of Hindostan. We wonder what role will Amitabh play in the biopic. There is so much that could be done with the presence of the superstar.
He can play Ranbir’s father in the film, or even better, the supervillain whom Dragon has to fight. His presence brings a lot of depth to the plot, we are certain.
Dragon seems to be a very peculiar name for a superhero movie. Explaining the reason behind the title, Ayan had said, “The boy has some mystical connection with fire. Fire is the symbol of power so, I called it Dragon.
Let’s see. I am not 100 percent sure about the title, but I like something about it,” So, our next superhero belongs to the fire nation. And that is all not that we see common with Avatar, but Ayan has also admitted that Dragon has shades of grey in his character.
There were rumours afloat that Dragon’s plot has an uncanny similarity to Tiger Shroff’s A Flying Jatt, a not so smart superhero who ends up wreaking more havoc than saving the world. But the rumours were time and again squashed by the teams of both the film.
