Ayan Mukherjee won’t be keeping his Brahmastra fans waiting for long. In a recent interview, the director of the much anticipated fantasy film said that took a decade to hit the theatres said that work on Brahmastra 2 has already started. “We’re at it. (It will take) a couple of years. And that’s one hundred per cent better than ten years. If we take another ten years, nobody will come to watch Brahmastra 2. We’re going to get it ready much before that,” he said.
Breaking the bollywood drought, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra: Part one smashed box office records. The film ended with a tease for a sequel, titled Brahmastra: Part Two – Dev. The highest-grossing Hindi film of 2022 received mixed reviews from audiences and critics alike. Many praised director Mukerji for his vision to create a homegrown universe of Hindu gods on par with VFX-dominated Hollywood superhero film franchises from Marvel Studios and DC.
Divulging more details about the Brahmastra sequel, he said that the film will chronicle Dev’s backstory as well as continuing the present-day timeline.
Both Ranbir and Alia Bhatt recently won Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories, respectively. While Ranbir won the award for Brahmastra, Alia took it for Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The fantasy adventure epic also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. The Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan was also seen in a special cameo.
