Ayan Mukerji, the director of Brahmastra, has offered some behind-the-scenes details from his next film.
Brahmastra is one of the most eagerly awaited films of the year 2022. Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna Akkineni are among the cast members. The movie is supposed to be the first in a planned trilogy. The teaser for the film was recently released, as well as a sneak glance at the full cast. Now, filmmaker Ayan Mukerji recounted experiences from the making of his next film in a recent interview, revealing that it took him ten years to complete.
In an interview with Punjab Kesari TV, Ayan said: “Brahmastra began in 2011 itself and since then it took me 10 years for us to convert the dream into reality. The film has many inspirations, since childhood, I was very fond of our history, and mythology, and many films have been made in the fantasy and superhero genre, but they were not connected to our roots. I took inspiration from our mythology and history. I believe that every Indian in this country is connected to our culture. So that is the root of Brahmastra. The film’s inspiration is from our mythology but it is based on today’s world.”
He also discussed his experience working with the film’s famous cast, stating that it was not an easy project. “Ranbir, Alia, and Amitabh are the soldiers of the film and not stars. They have supported me more than my crew.”
Brahmastra will elicit all of the audience’s emotions, but it is also a fresh film, so they will witness something they haven’t seen before. “I think the audience’s excitement for the film will be top most from all the films that are coming out.”
Brahmastra will be released in five Indian languages on September 9: Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
