Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, will be released in theatres on September 9. The film, directed by Ayan Mukerji, has been in development for eight years. Now, just days before its release, a Bollywood Hungama report claims that the film was made on a massive budget of more than 400 crore.
The reports further stated that the film’s expenses, excluding print and publicity, are ₹ 410 crore. “It’s the costliest Bollywood film to date and the expenditure will be visible on each and every frame of the film. The idea was to create a big screen spectacle like never before and Ayan and his team have managed to come up with visuals that will blow away the mind of the audience. The trailer is just a tease, as visuals of the film are at another level,” l a source close to the media house was quoted as saying. The source added, “While there is an element of nervousness in the stakeholders, they are also silently confident about the project.”
Brahmastra, Ayan Mukerji’s dream project, also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in key roles.
According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan will also appear in the film. However, the producers have not confirmed his connection to Brahmastra. Karan Johar posted a video on Instagram on Thursday revealing “the extraordinary power of Vanarastra.” Many people assumed it was Shah Rukh Khan’s character.
