Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva is the first installment of Ayan Mukerji's 'Astraverse'. The project, which is directed by Ayan Mukerji is being praised for its unique and rooted theme and stellar visualisation. While Brahmastra faced criticisms for its forced romantic track and amateur dialogues, it didn’t stop the Ranbir Kapoor starrer from emerging as one of the biggest post-pandemic successes of Indian cinema.
In a latest media chat, producer Karan Johar talked about Brahmastra facing criticisms. The filmmaker disclosed that both he and the Brahmastra team members are always open to criticism. The filmmaker further added that he is okay with everybody voicing their opinions on the film. However, Karan Johar specified what made him upset, in the process. “We have people who work in the industry and for the industry. Sometimes I feel that they can be critical, but being negative is not nice. We accept criticism with open arms. Because being critical is very imperative. Everyone needs that kind of policing. But I feel, sometimes some people push that from being critical to being negative," revealed Karan Johar.
The director further revealed that he always wanted to ask those people why they don’t want this film to work. "I wanted to ask them - don’t you want to make sure this massive cinema experience gets the footfall so that we can force forward with so much more,” revealed Karan Johar. “That’s the only thing that upsets me, that people within the industry sometimes, celebrate the ruination of a film. And I feel that’s never a good thing,” further added the owner of Dharma Productions.
