Brahmastra: Ayan Mukerji confirms the team is already thinking of a spin-off for Shah Rukh Khan’s Vanarastra

After much anticipation, the movie Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, will finally be released. It broke the 100 cr barrier during its opening weekend. While the fans were thrilled to see their favourite duo on screen, many were eagerly anticipating Shah Rukh Khan’s long-awaited comeback. The actor returned to the big screen as scientist Mohan Bharghav, probably as a tribute to Swades, and performed the character of Vanarastra in the film, following his cameos in Rocketry: The Nambi Effect and Laal Singh Chaddha.

As the actor’s fans grew more enthusiastic about him, there was a greater demand to see him in his spin-off or independent film. According to Ayan Mukerji, they have undoubtedly given it some attention.

Speaking to Indian Express post the release of Brahmastra, Ayan Mukerji said, “Before the fans were saying it, we were also saying that ourselves. When we were shooting the sequence in 2019, we were also saying on sets. As we discovered the personality of the scientist, we said, ‘Yaar, we have to do stuff. We have to do the origins story of the scientist!’”

An industry expert earlier told Bollywood Hungama, “It’s interesting that Shah Rukh Khan in Brahmastra is named Mohan Bhargav. He is usually known for playing Rahul and Raj but Mohan Bhargav was also a memorable character. Hence, the moment his full name is uttered in the film, it instantly rings a bell in the minds of the viewers.”

The magnum opus Brahmastra released theatrically on September 9 across 5 Indian languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada with a stellar ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
