With superhero movies doing fantastic business all around the world, in India, Ayan Mukerji is lapping up the trend. After Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, the duo is coming together again for a film temporarily titled Dragon. The movie will star Ranbir as a superhero and from what we’ve just learned, so is Alia. Rumours also point to Amitabh Bachchan being roped in to play a pivotal role in the film.

Earlier, we had reported that Ranbir will have the power to throw fire through his hands in the movie. Thanks to recent developments, it looks like Alia, too, will have superpowers in the film. Says a source, “Along with Ranbir, other characters including Alia Bhatt will also have superpowers in the film. The title Dragon will also go in for a change. It’s just a working title as of now.”
