Director Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming movie Brahmastra will have well-known stars like actors Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan starring in it. But there is one star who will be making his Bollywood debut, a star who is best known for his role as Bheem in the mythological TV show Mahabharat. The person we are talking about is none other than WWE Wrestler Saurav Gurjar.

Saurav has a negative role in the movie, and standing at 6 feet 8 inches tall, he sure makes for a menacing on-screen character. On joining the cast of Brahmastra, he revealed in an interview with DNA what his role involves and what he has been doing so far.

“I am playing a negative character in Brahmastra. The film is quite action-packed and I am doing all my moves. I have action scenes with Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the film,” Saurav was quoted as saying.

He had shared a picture on his Instagram page in which he could be seen giving Ranbir a piggy-back ride. He made carrying Ranbir look very effortless and stated in the caption, “I believe he is a super sweet buddy!! Supaaaa fun working with him!!! Love and respect bro!!!!”

In the interview, he also spoke about working with Ranbir and how he has helped him with his moves. He also said that he was fortunate to have been given a chance to work with Amitabh and was very nervous.

“Ranbir is very good-natured. He keeps asking me who is helping me train and how I do my moves or how wrestlers like Undertaker did their moves. I have been very fortunate to work with Mr. Bachchan. However, in my first scene with him, I had to punch him. I was a little nervous. Then he said to me – ‘you are a real wrestler, please don’t break my nose’. I got very nervous after that,” Saurav stated.

When sharing a picture of himself with Amitabh on Instagram, he had written, “Special day in my life click with Legend India actor Mr Amitabh Bachchan sahab.”
