Director Ayan Mukherji revealed, Dragon, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, is not a superhero film and will begin shooting in August.
Dragon shooting will start from August, after Ranbir wraps the Sanjay Dutt biopic.
Dragon, as the film is called, stars Ranbir and Alia Bhatt but there will be no capes or crime-fighting involved after all. "A lot of people have been saying that it is a superhero film. But it's not. It's in fact, a modern-day romantic fantasy," Ayan added.
He also said, This obviously means that Dragon isn't going to be a remake of Ryan Reynolds' Hollywood blockbuster Deadpool, as has been speculated.
"Ranbir won't do this film and Dutt simultaneously. He has already begun shooting for Dutt and it should be done by August. That's when I will start with him and Alia Bhatt." Ayan speaking at the premiere of Oscar-nominated film Lion.
Ayan was also questioned about the recent assault on Sanjay Leela Bhansali during the shoot of Padmavati, allegedly by members of Rajput group Karni Sena.
Ayan told to reporters, "As a young filmmaker and someone, who really respects Sanjay Bhansali, I feel it's sad and shocking. It shouldn't have happened. It was really unfortunate."
