Following years of anticipation and many delays, Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt released in the theatres on September 9 and opened to big numbers giving much relief to the cinemas. The film helmed by Ayan Mukerji received mixed reviews from critics and audiences but its reign at the box office seems unstoppable. But, both Ranbir and Alia admit that the support from the industry was immense for the film even though there was negativity towards Hindi projects.
EXCLUSIVE: Ranbir Kapoor admits there was negativity towards movies ahead of Brahmastra – “Everybody was waiting for good energy to be back”
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Alia Bhatt said, “I don’t think I have ever gotten so many ‘all the best’ messages before a film. Everyone was wishing and praying for the film to do well. That spirit of the industry even before the release was very special to witness.”
Adding further, Ranbir Kapoor said, “On the first Friday, we also saw so many actors going to the theatres to see the film. That was also such a heartwarming site to see, to see that kind of support. Because actors usually ask for a trial or see it in the comfort of their home. We felt there was a lot of support…because there was so much negativity towards movies and things going-on on social media, so everybody was just waiting for good energy to be back at the movies.”
Since Brahmastra is a trilogy, the second part Brahmastra Part 2 – Dev, which will retrace the life of Dev, will hit the theatres in 2025. The plan is to film the second and third parts in continuation.
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor will now begin the next schedule of Animal, helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, in October. It stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna. He also has Luv Ranjan’s next with Shraddha Kapoor. It is set for Holi 2023 release. On the other hand, Alia Bhatt has already wrapped Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. Directed by Karan Johar, it stars Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. It is slated for a 2023 release.
