Ayan Mukerji opens up on his 'dream project' Brahmastra!

8th Jun, 2022

Film Brahmastra is one of the most awaited films of 2022. It stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna Akkineni. The movie is projected to serve as the first movie in a planned trilogy. 

Lately, the makers divulged the teaser of the film and also gave a sneak peek of the whole cast. Now, in a media chat, director Ayan Mukerji posted anecdotes from the making of his forthcoming movie and disclosed that it took him 10 years to make it.

Speaking to a daily, Ayan revealed, "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 movie's inspiration is from our mythology but it is based on today's world."

Brahmastra will be slated to release in theatres on September 9 in five Indian languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
