Nagarjuna has revealed that he wanted to be a part of Brahmastra no matter what even if he had a lesser screen time

Nagarjuna is basking the love and success he is receiving for Brahmastra. The fantasy adventure film directed by Ayan Mukerji is receiving mixed reviews from the audience and critics.

I just had to be part of it.”

I’ve done more than enough films where I am in nearly every frame. Brahmastra was fun to shoot. All my scenes were with Alia and Ranbir, and they are so talented.”

He further spoke on what fans can see from him in the coming time.  He said, “I am there in full-force in my next release The Ghost. It is an out-and-out action thriller. At this stage of my career I like doing action films. At my age I think I am in good shape.”
