After working on the script for a long time, Ayan Mukerji is all set for his next directorial venture titled Dragon. Starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, Dragon is the first part of his ambitious superhero trilogy.

Reportedly Ranbir is learning different skills to perform better in action sequences. The makers of Dragon are currently finalising Ranbir Kapoor’s superhero look. The director and his team recently left for a recce in the United States, where they will also meet VFX specialists. Dragon will require heavy animation work, for which Mukerji has himself learnt the art.

Once Ranbir finishes Jagga Jasoos and Sanjay Dutt’s biopic with Rajkumar Hirani, he will start shooting for Mukerji’s film.The film requires a larger number of dates from the actors, which is why Mukerji has requested his actors not to shoot for any other films while working on Dragon. It is expected to go on floors in May 2017.

Dragon will be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions in association with Fox Star Studios.
