Actor Hrithik Roshan on Monday (September 26) teased that he might appear in the sequel of filmmaker Ayan Mukerji’s blockbuster film Brahmastra Part One: Shiva. The movie, which featured Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead, released in theatres on September 9 and has so far raised over Rs 360 crore gross at the global box office.

The 48-year-old actor is also rumoured to be a part of Nitesh Tiwari’s ambitious film Ramayana. When quizzed about the two projects, Hrithik said, “What is happening? Nothing is happening. Next Fighter will start and then there is potential for others to be made, (including) the ones you spoke of. Fingers crossed.” The actor will next reunite with his War director Siddharth Anand for “Fighter”, billed as India’s first aerial action franchise also starring Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor.
