Telugu Superstar Nagarjuna is ready for a comeback to Bollywood with Ayan Mukerji's upcoming magnum opus Brahmastra which also stars Ranbir Kapor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy.

A leading daily quoted a source saying, "Nagarjuna wanted to do a Hindi film for a long time, but was looking for an interesting project. He finally gave his nod to this one. He will join the Hindi film's sets from Tuesday in Mumbai."

Nagarjuna debuted in Bollywood with Ram Gopal Verma's Shiva (1990) more than 25 years ago and then starred in movies like Khuda Gawah, Zakham and his last Hindi movie LOC.

Brahmastra is touted to be the most ambitious project ever for the director, Ayan Mukerji.  

“This film is a modern day film. It is set in India as it exists today but the name of the film is Brahmastra because the energy, wisdom and powers in the film come from ancient India. As far as costumes are concerned, there are some which may not be the way you would expect them to be,” Ayan had said in an interview.

The movie is going to be the first part of an adventure trilogy. Brahmastra is backed by Dharma Productions, while Brahmastra would mark the fourth collaboration between Karan Johar and Ranbir Kapoor, it would be the director's third with the actor after delivering hits like, Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.  

Brahmastra is a fantasy adventure movie, the first part of a trilogy and will hit the theatres on August 15 this year. Brahmastra will clash with Akshay Kumar starrer Gold and John Abraham's Satyamev Jayate.
