Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra has been winning the hearts of millions. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer is loved by all; now all eyes are on part 2 and 3 of the trilogy. Recently, in a media chat, the veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt praised Ayan Mukerji and film Brahmastra.

When questioned about the change in filmmaking now, Mahesh Bhatt immediately responded, “I was dazzled by Brahmastra. When I saw the film, I felt that this is a quantum leap and I have no hesitation in saying that Ayan is the James Cameron of the Indian cinema world.” Mahesh Bhatt further revealed, “Of course, it required a Disney and the likes of Uday Shankar and Karan Johar and the support of Ranbir and Alia and Ayan’s entire team, but I think that it is something quite amazing.”

Mahesh Bhatt went on to appreciate Ayan Mukerji’s courage and told, “There is a filmmaker here who says that I am going to stand up and make movies which are going to be as good as the best content that is created by the world. And so, it’s playing overseas. Just standing up and mesmerising them by being rooted in India. They are rooted here and yet they are very contemporary in their packaging and the way it looks. It has the breath of India. It’s not referenced from somewhere, it comes from his own DNA, his own gene pool.”
