Reportedly, Jibraan Khan who essayed the role of Kajol’s son in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham will now assist Ayan Mukerji in Brahmastra...

Remember Jibraan Khan, the cutie who played the role of Krish, the son of Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham? The boy has grown up and is looking out for a break in the industry and his K3G director has turned out to be his mentor.

As per a report in a newspaper, Jibraan has been roped in as an Assistant Director for Brahmastra. A source tells a leading daily, “Jibraan has been roped in by Karan Johar as a chief Assistant Director (AD) for Dharma’s biggest film till date. Jibraan will now work on Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra, which stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles. He has already started working with the team.” 

Before joining KJo, 22-year-old Jibraan trained himself in martial arts, kathak, and horse riding to make himself fit for a Bollywood debut. He even worked as a trainer at Shiamak Davar’s dance studio, where he himself was once a student. There were also reports that Jibraan approached KJo for a role but the director turned him down saying that his face is too young for his age and he needed to look more mature.

A few days ago, Karan Johar announced the name of the film on Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday on Twitter. He also revealed that the movie will be a trilogy. Karan Johar tweeted, “A TRILOGY ...A FANTASY ADVENTURE....A LABOUR OF LOVE.....”BRAHMĀSTRA”.

Earlier there were reports of the film being titled as Dragon. The first among the three parts is set to hit theatres on August 15, 2019.
