Ayan Mukerji’s debut on Instagram
On the special occasion of launching Brahmastra’s logo, director Ayan Mukerji debuted on Instagram and the first thing that he shared on his social media was an anime poster of the fantasy film. It shows a cartoon version of the lead pair Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt against a cosmic background. He wrote, “Part 1: Love #brahmastra (P.S.: going to take some getting used to this new Instagram life).”
Brahmastra is a weapon wielded by Hindu God Brahma, who is said to be one of the trinities (Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh) in Hindu mythology. This weapon is considered the most lethal weapon in the universe. Hence, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s film refers to ancient wisdom, energies and power.
Ayan Mukerji on Brahmastra
Last year while talking about his project, Ayan Mukerji said, “It’s a modern-day film set in India as it exists today. But the reason it’s called Brahmastra is because the energies, wisdom, powers in the film come from ancient India. That’s all I would say. There are some costumes, may be not the way you’d expect them to be.”
Ranbir Kapoor on Brahmastra
Film’s male lead Shiva aka Ranbir Kapoor also said few words about his upcoming film. He said, “It is actually a supernatural romantic fairy tale at heart. Ayan (film’s director Ayan Mukerji) will never make a character that doesn’t have truth to it, or which is unbelievable. It’s too early to talk about the film, but it is something I am terribly excited about.”
Brahmastra Release Date
As announced by Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar on the social media, Brahmastra is releasing this Christmas. There are plenty of months to go through to witness this magical love story on the silver screens.
